Traditional brass band performance

An excellent description about brass bands and their history can be found on the North American Brass Band Association (NABBA) website here and also on the Wikipedia site for British Brass Bands here


Brass Bands are very versatile and can participate in multiple types of musical events such as Marches, Marching Bands, and competitive matches in addition to the more traditional seated concert hall performances.


Fox Valley Brass Bandís focus is the more traditional concert hall experience.† We focus on several high quality performances annually around our community, but are not actively engaged in or pursuing competitive events.
