 About Us

About Us

The Princeton Symphonic Brass was born in 2016 out of a desire to assemble some of the best brass players from the top musical ensembles near Princeton. This is the first professional brass group of its kind in the area and each player jumped at the chance to be a part of this unique ensemble. The group's repertoire spans from the renaissance to today.

Online Concert - "Big Brass on the Grass" Friday, Aug 21, 2020, 6:30 PM EDT


The entire Princeton Symphonic Brass will play jazz, pop, and family classics in a live-streamed deck concert .
