Hot Horns (formerly Bay Street Brassworks) received first prize at the 2003 New York Quintet Competition. Founded in 1995, this brass quintet performs a wide variety of musical genres. Hot Horns has cooperative relationships with a number of Young Audiences organizations, which allows them to provide both educational and concert opportunities. The musicians spend a considerable amount of time encouraging young brass players. The range of musical abilities has produced engagements from formal concert series to opening ceremonies for the Baltimore Orioles Baseball team and Arlington, Virginia's Bicentennial celebration. Hot Horns has toured in the U.S. and performed for packed concert halls during a 1999 Korean tour.
