Special to Iredell Free News

Trinity Episcopal Church in Statesville is excited to share The Carolina Brass Quintet with the community on Sunday, October 9.

This special event, “Shiny Brass and Shining Joy,” will provide a time of coming together and remembering how we have all been affected in personal ways by COVID-19 and the effects of the pandemic.

Trinity Episcopal wants to mark this as a time of coming together in hope. The event, which begins at 3 p.m., is free, but donations are welcomed.

The Carolina Brass Quintet was founded by Dr. Bill Lawing, recently retired from his position as The Estes Millner Professor of Music at Davidson College.

Lawing has had a distinguished career as a solo, chamber, and symphonic musician. His accolades are numerous, and he has performed across Europe as well as in China and Hong Kong. He has performed under the baton of Loren Maazel, Zubin Meta, and Aaron Copeland and he has performed symphonic concerts with Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman, Sarah Vaughan, Johnny Mathis, Bela Fleck, and the Kruger Brothers, among others.

Accompanying quintet members are Alex Wilbron, trumpet; Byron Johns, horn; John Bartlett, trombone; and Beth Wiese, tuba. These musicians excel in their respective musical careers as well.

Trinity Episcopal is located at 801 Henkel Road, Statesville.
