Anima Brass is a Baltimore, MD based quintet dedicated to the world of contemporary brass chamber music. Anima was selected as the 2016 Aspen Music Festival and School Fellowship Brass Quintet, which is perhaps the most competitive and prestigious brass chamber music fellowship in the country. They have appeared in concert with the American Brass Quintet in both Salida and Aspen, CO and in 2017 they were the runners-up for the Ackerman Chamber Music Competition. As ardent advocates for expanding the brass repertoire, Anima is dedicated to commissioning and performing newly written works, particularly by historically excluded composers. This winter they will record genre-crossing composer Kali Malone’s new works for brass which frame historical tuning systems in the context of minimalism. The musicians of Anima brass have performed with the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Reading Symphony, Westmoreland Symphony, and other ensembles throughout the mid-Atlantic.
