Presidio Brass

  • Since forming in 2006, Presidio Brass has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment. By combining a brass quintet, piano and percussion instruments with fresh, original arrangements, their unique sound has become a trademark for the ensemble from San Diego, CA, captivating audiences the world over. Through their hit touring show “And All That Brass...", a collection of Broadway’s greatest hits, these five young men present music with a good dose of wit and humor that together have become hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance. Audiences and music critics agree, "And All That Brass..." is “Two Thumbs Up”, a “Must See!”. Presidio Brass has performed and provided educational outreach in over 46 states, conducted master classes at many of America’s finest colleges and universities, been featured on National Public Radio, and partnered with VH1 Save The Music Foundation. Their partnership with KHS America/XO Brass allows them to help nurture future performers and educators. Each member of the ensemble began his music career by joining their school’s band program. Inspired by the dedication of their school music teachers, Presidio Brass came together with the primary mission to promote music education and music appreciation in youngsters. For this very reason, performances are often coupled with a master class or school program for which the quintet volunteers their time. The Presidio Brass has released four recordings: Stolen Moments, a collection of popular classical and jazz selections, Christmas Day, an assortment of well-loved holiday favorites, Sounds of the Cinema, which includes pieces from their signature stage performance of the same name, and their newsest release, Rhapsody in Brass, a collection of popular American music influenced by classical and jazz idioms.
