The North Point Brass Quintet was founded as a ceremonial ensemble in 2013 by some of the top brass players from the Milwaukee and Chicago area. Our repertoire includes classical masterpieces, Dixieland, Broadway, Patriotic, holiday and sacred music that reflect both the versatility of our players and the many directions that brass quintet music reaches.

North Point Brass members have performed with the New York Philharmonic, Arkansas Symphony, Milwaukee Symphony, Green Bay Symphony, Festival City Symphony, Racine Symphony, Kenosha Symphony and Madison Symphonies. In addition to maintaining busy performance schedules covering classical, jazz, Latin and Broadway styles, we are involved in music education; both through curricular and extra-curricular school programs and through private lesson instruction at Lakeland College, Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, Brass Bell Music Store, Be Sound Music Studio, J.S. Cable Music Studio and White House of Music.

Our performances have brought us to many churches including Fox Point Lutheran, The Basilica of St. Josaphat, The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, Holy Hill National Shrine of Mary, Gesu Parish, All Saints Cathedral, and many universities including University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Marquette University, St. Norbert College, Wisconsin Lutheran College, Mount Mary College, University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Alverno College and Concordia University.

North Point Brass Quintet Members:

Dale Elenich, trumpet
Eric Sperry, trumpet
Sarah Fleming, horn

Drum Circles with Andrew Moreno in July, 2019, at "Family Music, Alfresco." Despite there being a heat advisory/100 degree weather that day, we still had some awesome and willing takers for our event! We are looking forward to hosting many more fun, interactive events such as this in the future.
