Legacy Brass Quintet is the honors
student brass quintet for the IUP Department of Music. Membership in the ensemble is by performance
audition and is open to any IUP music major in the brass area. The funding for this ensemble was made
possible through a gift from Jim and Jamie Self. Jim Self is an IUP alumnus (BSEd 1965)
who has been a first-call tuba player in Los Angeles for over 30 years. He is known for playing the “Voice of the
Mother Ship” in the movie Close
Encounters of the Third Kind and has performed for hundreds of movie and
television soundtracks in his career, as well as performing as principal tuba
in many of the top professional orchestras in and around Los Angeles.
