“It's an honour to collaborate with musicians who bring more than just technical proficiency to the table. Origin's deep understanding of new music and their dedication to its realization brought important conversations to rehearsals that you can't find with every brass quintet.”

 Graeme Shields, Vital Organ Project

Our Mission



Origin is committed to the advancement of repertoire for the brass quintet. By working closely with composers writing for the group, we aim to expand the existing repertoire for brass quintet in order to provide a collection of works that is accessible to chamber ensembles across the country. Our goal is to provide high level performances and recordings for composers in order for them to have substantial representation of their works by the Origin Brass Quintet.
