Jubilant Brass Quintet

Jubilant Brass Quintet: Weddings, Receptions, Recitals, Concerts
Jubilant Brass Quintet

 The Jubilant Brass was formed in 1989 as an outgrowth of the music ministry of Chelten Baptist Church.  All five members of the quintet were members of the church at the time.  We began with the sole purpose of enhancing the worship services at our church.  As time went on, we started playing for other churches in the area, as well.  Although some of the members have changed over the years, the group is still active in performing in local churches to embellish services for congregations in the Philadelphia area.  We are also active in playing wedding services, receptions, recitals and concerts  for educational purposes.
