The Starkweather Brass Quintet was formed in 2005 and has quickly established itself as one of the premiere brass groups in the greater Cleveland area. Made up of Larry Herman (trumpet), Heather Zweifel (trumpet), Emily Shelley (horn), Tom Pylinski (trombone), Ben Ammon (tuba); the Starkweather Brass Quintet is the perfect ensemble for your wedding, church service, concert series, corporate or private party or school’s commencement.
The small ensemble offers a full brass sound with a wide dynamic range. Their repertoire ranges from medieval and baroque music all the way up to contemporary tunes. If something isn’t in their current library, one of their experienced arrangers can set it for your function. Starkweather’s performers hold degrees some of the nation’s finest institutions, including the Cleveland Institute of Music, and can be heard all over Ohio performing with every kind of ensemble from salsa bands to symphony orchestras.
