The Copper Street Brass Quintet was founded in 2008 and is founded in Minneapolis, MN. Their newest member, Ed Hong, just graduated from the University of Iowa with a Masters degree in trumpet. The group is very active, and is certainly worth our attention. Their website is organized, informative and modern. I especially liked their Multimedia page, with links to purchase their recordings and videos of their recent projects, like "The Evolution of the Brass Quintet". From 2009 to 2011, Ed was the second trumpet player in the Iowa Brass Quintet, and a student of Dr. Amy Schendel's.
