Metales M5 - Mexican Brass

BandComedyClassical

Metales M5 unites classical and world music, contemporary repertoire and pops arrangements in programs that range through the brass literature and beyond. These five young musicians break the barriers of musical genres as they take the Blues to the Opera and Bach to the roads of Michoacán. Metales M5 is fresh, funny, entertaining!

Biography

Metales M5 is Mexico’s leading brass quintet. Since its founding in 2005 in Morelia, Michoacán, the five men play a wide variety of music without regard to genre: Baroque and contemporary music, opera, blues, pop, movie soundtracks, and folk music from Mexico, Spain, and Latin America. Combining their skills at fine classical chamber music, non-stop interaction with the audience, inborn showmanship and their inimitable Latin American charm, M5 performances are unique musical-theatrical concert experiences. As evidenced in their CDs and live programs, M5 mixes the known with the unexpected – surprising, virtuosic and always entertaining.

Each player has an extensive professional background with his respective brass instrument. Holding degrees from universities in Germany and Mexico City, the musicians have played in and soloed with the symphony orchestras of Mexico, and are Ensemble-in-Residence at Morelia’s Conservatorio de las Rosas, North America’s oldest conservatory of music. Their unique style combining fine chamber music with popular entertainment makes Metales M5 incomparable.
