Quintet's concert to benefit Habitat for Humanity project


THE Classic Brass Quintet will give a concert at 4 p.m. Sunday at Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church to raise money to help pay for a Habitat for Humanity house church members are planning to build.

Admission is free, but an offering will be taken.

Craig Duerling, a member of the quintet, said he asked the others if they would like to help, and they agreed.

"We are not professionals, but we like music and enjoy playing together," he said.

The group has been together since 1979 and plays primarily for church services, weddings and some funerals. The members come from various communities and walks of life.

Mr. Duerling, who plays trombone, lives in Herald Harbor and is a software manager at Westinghouse. Gary Alker, a trumpet player, lives in Catonsville and is a consulting manager with Hewlett Packard. Sykesville resident Mirrel Wothers, also a trumpet player, is a full-time mother. French hornist Leslie Norris is the band director at Pine Grove Middle School in Baltimore and lives in Towson. Donald Brink, the tuba player, lives in Reisterstown and is the band director and special area manager at Franklin Middle School.

For Sunday's concert they will play traditional pieces, blues and swing.

The church is at 200 School Lane. For additional information, call the church office at 859-0990.
