Northwest Brass Choir (NWBC) grew from idea to reality over the 15+ years we’ve spent running Brassapalooza, a summer brass chamber music camp in Seattle. Brassapalooza focuses on large mixed-instrument brass choirs, like-instrument choirs, and smaller mixed-brass chamber ensembles. We felt a need to keep that going all year long at a high level, and to challenge young players to go musically above and beyond.

NWBC empowers young brass and percussion players to play and perform at a high level of musicianship, and serves as a pathway for them to transform into strong, creative, confident musicians, as they perform music that may not be available to them in a band or orchestral setting.
