On Sunday, January 20, 2013 in New York City, Chamber Music America will officially confer its highest honor, The Richard J Bogomolny National Service Award, on the American Brass Quintet.

 

ABQ’s receipt of the prestigious award marks only the fourth time in 35 years the award has been given to an ensemble, the first time an ensemble recipient has not been a string quartet, and the first time it has been given to wind or brass performers. Past recipients include Rudolph Serkin, William Schuman, Menaham Pressler, Guarneri Quartet, and Richard Goode.


The award will be formally presented at Chamber Music America’s national conference banquet at the Westin Hotel, New York City, on January 20, 2013 with special guest speaker Joan Tower. On January 19 at Symphony Space in New York City CMA presents a concert honoring the ABQ featuring noted performers including the New York Woodwind Quintet, Axiom Brass, trumpeters Wayne DuMaine and Joe Bergstaller, and renowned composer of brass chamber music Eric Ewazen, among others.

 

Founded in 1960, the American Brass Quintet is the longest continuously performing brass quintet in North America. It has to date commissioned or premiered approximately 150 works and has released over 50 recordings marking the largest recorded legacy of serious brass chamber music by an ensemble. Current members of the quintet are Raymond Mase and Kevin Cobb, trumpet; David Wakefield, horn; Michael Powell, trombone; John D. Rojak, bass trombone.
