The M Street Brass Quintet performs music regularly for weddings, church services, recitals, social gatherings, and more throughout the Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington D.C. metropolitan area. We were founded by Lawrence Eden (Tuba, Leader) and Kurt Lucas (Trombone) in 1978. The name is derived from our early rehearsal space: a three story town house in the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C.
The M Street Brass Quintet has performed most recently at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, as well as the Renwick Gallery, The Washington Cathedral, the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Oregon Ridge, Wolf Trap Farm Park for the Performing Arts, Wintergreen and Coolfont Resorts and at most of the malls in the Washington metropolitan area. The Quintet has performed educational concerts in the public schools of Washington, D.C., Montgomery County, Fairfax County and Prince Georges County. The Quintet was featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, and performed on Fairfax County Public Television. Most recently, the Quintet performed a concert for the Senior Senator and the Governor from the State of Maryland. This performance was broadcast live overseas in Europe and Asia.
