Fresno State’s scholarship brass ensemble, the Clendenin Brass Quintet, will perform its fall recital at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, in the Fresno State Concert Hall.

The Quintet will perform works by Malcolm Arnold, Patrice Caratini, Victor Ewald and J.S. Bach.

Members of the quintet are:  Bryce Lopez and Patrick Jensen on trumpet; Anthony Perez on horn; Andrew Watkins, on trombone; and Jonathan Grant on bass trombone/tuba.

The Clendenin Brass Quintet is a scholarship ensemble funded by the generosity of the Clendenin family of Boulder, Colorado. Dr. W. Ritchie Clendenin served as the trumpet professor and previous director of the group. He retired in 2002 after a distinguished teaching and performing career at Fresno State spanning 28 years.

Selected by audition, the ensemble has earned a reputation for excellence in brass chamber music. The group performs numerous concerts during the year, along with serving in a ceremonial and entertainment capacity on campus and throughout the community.
