Days after releasing their self-titled debut album, Alex Sallade and Alek Mansouri of Harmonia Brass Quintet stopped by The Music Room to speak with Liz Webb about their music, songwriting, and recording experience. Formed in 2016, Harmonia Brass Quintet is comprised of UD students and alumni Alex Sallade (french horn), Alek Mansouri (bass trombone), Cory Nunn (trumpet), Thomas Warnock (trombone), and Matthew Hubner (trumpet).
Drawing inspiration from film, T.V., and video games, Harmonia delivers a new and unique approach to traditional brass quintet repertoire. The group’s album, recorded at Ken-Del Studios in Wilmington, features both original compositions and arrangements of well-known songs. With appearances at the Calvary-Hillcrest Episcopal Church in Wilmington and UD’s 8-Bit Orchestra concert, Harmonia Brass Quintet have shared their creative and enjoyable music across the Delaware community.
