The Greenville Brass Quintet was created to advance the art and promote the appreciation of quality brass chamber music throughout South Carolina and the Southeast.  Members of the Greenville Brass Quintet are among the top freelance musicians in the Southeast and are experienced in a wide array of musical settings.  The quintet consists of the principal brass players of the Greenville Symphony Orchestra, Joe Hughes, trombonist, Phil Elkins and Jens Larsen on trumpets, Anneka Zuehlke-King on French horn and Don Strand on tuba.
