M5 MEXICAN BRASS – Serious fun: from the Baroque to Broadway!


Since it’s founding in 2005, M5 MEXICAN BRASS have established themselves as Latin America’s most successful Brass Quintet with wide international recognition. Their receipe is the mix of high class music making and humor.
Combining their skills at virtuosic chamber music in all styles, non-stop interaction with the audience, inborn showmanship, inimitable Latin American charm, and their very own sound,                                                                                   M5 concerts are unique musical- theatrical concert experiences.

In it’s 13th Anniversary year, the group looks back at a very active touring schedule with more than 1000 concerts in 5 continents. M5 has been touring the US and Canada extensively since 2008. The quintet made its South America debut in 2012 in Cartagena, Colombia, performed for the first time in Africa in 2013 in Algeria, in China in 2014, Chile in 2015, the Bahamas in 2016 and Germany and Peru in 2017. Being one of Mexico’s most active cultural ambassadors, M5 MEXICAN BRASS are as comfortable in renowned venues as the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, the Qintai Concert Hall in Wuhan/ China, the Sala Nezahualcoyotl in Mexico City or in High School Auditoriums and universities.

M5 MEXICAN BRASS has performed with worldwide renowned musicians like Fred Mills and Jens Lindemann.
A large percentage of M5’s activities are dedicated to education, whether school concerts, workshops or master classes. In the last  10 years the dynamic quintet performed more than 500 educational concerts for aproximately 200,000 children in Mexico, the US and Canada.
An increasing number of contemporary composers write new works for M5.
