The Aries constellation is made up of four stars. The same is true of the Aries Quartet. Bringing these four stars together is the chance of a lifetime and we hope you enjoy following along with the Aries Project as it soars into existence.
The Aries Quartet is Joseph Alessi, Ian Bousfield, Jeremy Wilson, and James Markey. Prior to this project Ian and Jeremy worked together for five years in the Vienna Philharmonic while Joe and Jim worked together for twelve years in the New York Philharmonic.
These long time friendships and professional relationships combined with the fact that these musicians all play Getzen or Edwards Trombones and Griego Mouthpieces made this project come together quickly. The whole idea was born from a conversation between Joe and Ian. A few texts sent during a discussion by Ian, Christan Griego, and Brett Getzen were almost immediately met with enthusiastic “yes, absolutely” responses, and within five minutes the project was a GO!
Bringing high definition video content to our now social world, along with a recording project for these musicians, allows for this project to be interesting on so many levels.
We hope to announce a few public concert dates shortly. Make sure to sign up for notifications below.
