BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - The Tower Brass Quintet, a premier chamber music ensemble, will
give a concert at the Evelyn Chapel (1301 N. Park St., Bloomington) of Illinois Wesleyan
University. The concert, to be held on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 2:30 p.m., is free and

The quintet consists of the following performers: Brian Bushong, trumpet; Larry Herman,

six recordings, the latest of which is entitled "20." They have been together for
over 25 years, and have performed in just as many states.

in Barcs, Hungary. The group was also named "most popular instrumental ensemble"
by the Lake Erie West People's Choice Awards.
