Atlantic Brass Quintet

The Boston-based Atlantic Brass Quintet is a five-piece chamber music ensemble which was founded in 1985, by John Manning, Joseph Foley, John Faieta and Bob Rasmussen. Early after its inception, it received first prize in a number of chamber music and brass quintet competitions, including the Coleman Chamber Music Competition, Carmel Chamber Music Society Competition, the Shoreline Alliance Chamber Music Competition, the Summit Brass First International Brass Ensemble Competition, and the Rafael Mendez International Brass Quintet Competition. In 1992 the ensemble won the "Premiere Prix" at the International Brass Competition of Narbonne, France, recognized worldwide as the preeminent competition of its kind. As of 2005, the current members of the Atlantic Brass Quintet are: Louis Hanzlik, trumpet;
Hirofumi Noguchi, trumpet; Seth Orgel, horn; John Faieta, trombone; and John Manning, tuba.

As of September 1, 2007, it has become known that John Faieta has retired from ABQ and has been replaced by trombonist, Tim Albright.
