The Fox Valley Brass Band, led by Dr. Thomas Bough, performs literature of the traditional British Brass Band genre while also promoting the new works of contemporary composers through both original compositions and transcriptions.  The group consists of professional-level volunteer musicians from around the Fox Valley Community and beyond.  Members are chosen not only for their outstanding musicianship, but also for their willingness to support and create educational opportunities for youth.
