Summer Brass Institute 2021 Recap

This year’s Summer Brass Institute, hosted by Monumental Brass Quintet, was a terrific experience for attendees and faculty alike!  Seeing and hearing kids making music together in person at the camp was a truly wonderful experience. Some of the campers had not played music in person with their peers since mid-March 2020. This year’s SBI provided a safe space for the momentous occasion of playing together in ensembles. Daily interactive masterclasses were held in Improvisation, Conducting, Rhythm Olympics, Testing Your Musical Knowledge, and Instrument Care & Maintenance. Most sessions were held outdoors as was the final concert on Friday, June 25th.   Parents and friends brought lawn chairs to the final concert where eight ensembles performed wonderfully!
