The Brass Consortium was founded in 1992 as a brass quintet, to perform recitals, premieres, and many other functions. The quintet draws from a wide repertoire of music, ranging from classical to contemporary, jazz and Broadway. The members, faculty and alumni of New England Conservatory, as well as Boston Conservatory, Boston University and Berklee College of Music, include the finest professional brass musicians in the region.
The Brass Consortium performs throughout New England, including concert appearances in Boston, Cambridge, Nantucket, New Hampshire and Maine. They regularly appear at numerous colleges and private academies for graduations and other ceremonies.
The Brass Consortium is expandable to up to 18 musicians for a richer, more festive brass ensemble sound.
