Brass quintet set for riverside concerts

UWindsor trumpet instructor Ross Turner will lead a quintet of Windsor Symphony Orchestra brass musicians in two free concerts this weekend alongside the Detroit River.

Besides Turner, the group features Norm Engel on trumpet, Iris Krizmanic on horn, Rupert Price on trombone, and Brent Adams on tuba. Their program will range from Woody Guthrie to Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, from the James Bond theme to Georges Bizet’s Carmen.

Both concerts begin at 7 p.m. and organizers encourage attendees to bring lawn chairs, blankets, even a picnic dinner to enjoy in the two waterfront locations:

  • Saturday, July 22, at King’s Navy Yard Park in Amhertsburg;
  • Sunday, July 23, in the Windsor Sculpture Garden at the foot of Bridge Avenue.

The next concerts in the free summer series will feature the woodwind quintet, August 26 in Colchester Harbour Park and August 27 in Reaume Park, Windsor.
