Welcoming 855 Brass to United Parish!

Praise God with the sound of the trumpet! Praise God with the timbrel and dance:
Praise God with strings and the organ. Praise God upon the loud cymbals:
Praise God upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath Praise God! – Psalm 150

This year, we welcome the incredibly talented 855 Brass Quintet into the United Parish family! Featuring Joel Kayser and Kyra Hulligan on trumpet, Joe Venezia on French horn, Kevin Dugat on trombone, and Hunter Farley on the tuba, they will play for 11am worship on September 10, November 19, February 11, and May 19, and for our 7pm Lessons and Carols Service on December 24, as well as giving concerts in our beautiful sanctuary.

Hailing from the vibrant musical hub of Boston, 855 stands as an outstanding brass quintet born out of the esteemed Boston University School of Music. Their ensemble comprises a collective of accomplished musicians, both current students and alumni of Boston University, each of whom have played with orchestras like the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Civic Orchestra, and the New World Symphony Orchestra. With a commitment to artistic excellence, 855 embraces a dynamic and diverse repertoire that spans across a multitude of musical genres. Their passion lies in crafting performances that resonate deeply with every member of our audience, delivering captivating and enjoyable concerts that linger long after the final note has faded. Please join us on Sunday, September 10 as we raise our voices in harmony with sounds of the brass, organ, and drums(!) singing in community with this extraordinary group of young professionals.
