What We Do

The Brass Band of Appalachia serves the Appalachian region as an ambassador of the performing arts, with a mission to invigorate and foster musical activities, growth, and education within the community.

Our History

The Brass Band of Appalachia was formed in February, 2016 in Bristol, VA.  The news of the formation of a British-Style Brass Band was so well-received that the initial open reading session was attended by 38 music professionals, performers, and educators from the region.  By the end of the band's first month of existence, over sixty musicians were on the roster and eager to perform in one of the limited 30 ensemble positions!
