Participation in the Brass Ensemble is open to any middle school and high school band student, particularly brass players looking to improve their sound, technique, and overall success on their instrument! The group is comprised of students who play many of the instruments of the brass family, including the Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Baritone, Euphonium, and Tuba.
The Brass Ensemble has performed at the Greene County CTC Holiday Luncheon and GCMEA Small Ensembles Concerts.
While small ensemble information will usually be sent out to participating parents and students through email, sometimes things come up or change at the last minute, making it necessary for parents and students to receive this new information quickly. For this reason, Remind classes have been set up for each of our small ensembles. By signing up for Remind messages through the app, text message, or email, you will be able to receive quick notifications from your small ensembles instructor(s) with important reminders, when practices are canceled or rescheduled due to conflicts or weather, etc. No phone numbers or email addresses are ever exchanged or visible to the instructors or other parents and students. Click on the button bellow for information on how to sign up for Brass Ensemble Remind messages.
