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 this San Diego, CA ensemble as they captivate audiences everywhere.
Through their touring show of Hollywood’s greatest hits, “Sounds of the Cinema,” these five young men present film music with a good dose of wit and humor — the hallmarks of every Presidio Brass performance. The show has been enjoyed internationally, with performances and educational outreach programs throughout North America. Presidio Brass has performed in over 40 states, conducted master classes at many of America’s finest colleges and universities and been featured on National Public Radio.
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. When not on tour, they continue to perform with orchestras, 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 for students of all ages.
Each member of the ensemble began his music career by joining his 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.
