The quintet performs the entire spectrum of music for brass instruments, from today's composers to Baroque and Renaissance music transcribed for modern instruments.

The ensemble's light-hearted entertainment intertwines with serious classical music, said Matthew Wallace, the museum's deputy director.

Founded in 1964, the Saint Louis Brass Quintet is one of America's longest-standing brass quintets. After more than 2,500 engagements, the only original member is Melvyn Jernigan, who retired after 35 years with the St. Louis Symphony. The other quintet members hold positions at Yale University, the University of Texas and Indiana University.

The quintet members are: Allan Dean and Miki Sasaki, trumpet; Victoria Knudtson, French horn; Jernigan, trombone; and Daniel Perantoni, tuba.

Tickets are $20 for museum members, $25 for non-members and $15 for students and military. Children, ages 12 and younger are admitted free.

The museum is at 261 Centennial Dr.

The concert is repeated at 7 p.m. Monday at Mayville (N.D.) State University.
