Featuring a lineup of top-notch musicians who are masters of their craft, this brass band is sure to blow you away with their virtuosic solos, tight harmonies and dynamic stage presence. Under the direction of Professor Kevin Stees, the JMU Brass Band is one of the most successful collegiate brass bands in the world today. Formed by Stees in the Fall of 2000, the band was named the North American Brass Band Association 1st Section Champion in 2004 and 2005, and was the 2006, 2007, 2010, 2016, 2019 and 2022 ABBA Championship Section Runner-up. The group maintains an active schedule, performing regularly throughout the academic year. They have been a featured ensemble at numerous festivals and conferences

A highlight of this brass-fueled concert is Terry Vosbein's three-movement composition "Pillars of Brass," composed specifically for this award winning ensemble.
