Imperial Brass

A versatile group with a wide-ranging repertoire, the Dallas-based Imperial Brass draws on some of the finest talent the Metroplex can provide. Imperial Brass consists of 5 core members and 13 auxiliary members, which combine to create their large brass ensemble. They perform in various combinations throughout the DFW area during their busy concert season. The repertoire of the Imperial Brass is quite extensive and varies in style.

Members of Imperial Brass have played with the Dallas Symphony, Fort Worth Symphony, Dallas Opera, Richardson Symphony, Dallas Wind Symphony, Arlington Ballet, Plano Symphony, East Texas Symphony and Irving Symphony. In addition, members have a vast amount of recording experience and have performed with many popular artists.

Imperial Brass was featured recently on PBS' series, "Barney and Friends" in an episode entitled "Come Blow Your Horn." It introduced the children to the beautiful sounds of brass music and taught them that dedication to any skill will produce wonderful results. Imperial Brass also performed at the opening ceremonies of The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano, Texas, and has been featured at other venues such as the Eisemann Center and the Galleria.

As active educators in the Dallas area, Imperial Brass is dedicated to encouraging and inspiring future generations of musicians. In addition to teaching in their private music studios, Imperial Brass performs regularly at area schools with two different shows entitled "Brass Around the World" and "Brass of Ages.” Imperial Brass has two recordings- a holiday CD entitled “Christmastime is Here,” and their recently released “Classical, Jazz & Beyond.”
