TAMPA, Fla. – Forest Hills Presbyterian Church will showcase The Carrollwood Brass Quintet in a concert at 3 p.m. March 5 as part of the church’s Music For Mission Series.
Irma-Louise Wright, the church’s director of music, said the event at 709 W. Linebaugh Ave. will include music for all tastes, including a couple of works featuring organist David Lewicki. She added that a reception will follow the performance.
The Carrollwood Brass is a brass quintet that was formed in 2015 primarily to perform Christmas carols, something that founder Chris Hugues fondly remembered from his high school days.
The members are Jessica Wood, French horn; Marc Gordon, euphonium; Ingrith Saavedra, tuba; Fred Green, trumpet; and Hugues, trumpet.

The group began playing at senior facilities, churches, and The Carrollwood Cultural Center, and the repertoire expanded to include classical, popular, and jazz pieces.
The group members have a wide range of experience, from engineering to teaching to accounting. In addition to playing in The Carrollwood Brass, members perform in several groups throughout the Tampa Bay region and beyond, including The Blue Notes Jazz Band, the Carrollwood Jukebox Big Band, Jazz Soup (jazz quartet), The Tampa Bay Brass Band, and The Carrollwood Winds, as well as many other small ad hoc groups.
There is no admission charge, but free-will donations are accepted to benefit Tampa’s Metropolitan Ministries, which supports and aids homeless families in the community.
