It sure is nice to be in demand! Our summer schedule filled up quickly; there are tons of opportunities to see the quintet perform.

If you haven’t caught one of our shows yet, this is the perfect season to take in your first Bedford Brass Quintet concert. Enjoy the sunshine and a breezy program dominated by jazz and pops music. Many of the concerts listed below are open-air, and they’re all free to the public!
