Origin Brass at Ganz Hall with Make Music Chicago

When's the last time that you attended an artistic event that touches you or informed you more of a value of your own life? I remember attending a concert by the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble during my undergrad that not only elevated my expectation of what a chamber ensemble could sound like, but help create a vision that we in Origin Brass aim to support and develop. By involving diverse repertoire and a diverse line-up of musicians, the Academy showed me how much a music can bolster a sense of community.

Along with countless other musicians in Chicago and around the world, Origin Brass will be joining the Make Music Alliance to present a recital at Ganz Hall during the Make Music Chicago events. Make Music Alliance, partnered with the NAMM, are built on the idea that music is for everyone and can help our society celebrate and heal, which is a vision Origin shares.

Origin Brass + The Vital Organ Project

CHICAGO, April 20, 2017 – Composers from Michigan and Illinois come together to write new music for Origin Brass and organ. The concert begins at 7pm CDT at St. Vincent de Paul Parish at 1010 W Webster Ave. This is a FREE event open to the public, but donations are encouraged. All music on the program is written within the last 5 years, much of it hot off the printer, never heard before. 

Origin Brass is a Chicago-based brass quintet striving to reach audiences across all backgrounds. The group consists of current and postgraduate students from DePaul University. Members of the group have strong connections to the education of youth, the outreach of music and the communication of contemporary music. While still a young ensemble, Origin is achieving large feats in the areas of commissioning and performance of contemporary works. Origin Brass performs a variety of music with unbridled enthusiasm. 

Vital Organ Project is a collective that facilitates the creation of new music featuring the abilities and distinction of a traditional pipe organ. Through concert series and ongoing premieres of new works, we believe this project will showcase the true versatility of the organ and its relevancy in the 21st century. Learn more at
