Presidio Brass

Special Event

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. Members of the Presidio Brass have performed with major symphony orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony and San Diego Symphony, and have shared the stage with commercial and pop artists that include Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, Quincy Jones and more. When not on tour, they continue to perform throughout the country as freelance artists, maintain private teaching studios at local universities, arrange and compose new music, assist with public school music programs, and operate an annual summer music camp in San Diego for brass students of all ages. In addition to performing as a brass quintet, Presidio Brass performs regularly as a part of Millennia Consort, one of the nation's premiere brass, organ and percussion ensembles. Millennia Consort is active in commissioning new works as well as arrangements of popular classical music. The latest recording by the ensemble, Pictures of a New Beginning, includes commissions of new music by Craig Phillips, John Hirten and Jon Naples, and features an arrangement of the orchestral favorite Pictures at an Exhibition by Presidio Brass’ tubist, Scott Sutherland.
