About Us

The Baltimore Brass was founded in 2000 by graduates of the Peabody Conservatory of Music over a few beers in a dimly lit underground stone-cellar known as Brewer’s Art, locally famous for their own superb craft beer. Since then, the ensemble has taken many twists and turns to grow into the high-caliber yet musically diverse ensemble today. Some people recognize them as a refined chamber ensemble and others recognize them as a fierce brass band supplemented with saxophones and percussionists. No matter their shape or form, the Baltimore Brass is always at the top of their game entertaining audiences young and young at heart.
