Brownstone Brass is an NYC based brass quintet with a passion for classic brass quintet repertoire, original arrangements and compositions, new music, and creative programming. Made up of professional freelancers and music educators, Brownstone Brass rehearses and performs in a positive and encouraging environment. We want to share music we love with our audiences and create new experiences for our listeners. 

For their inaugural concert, Brownstone Brass chose music that encapsulates what it is to be a theater musician in New York City. This eclectic program will take listeners on a journey through American musical theater, jazz, and popular song. 

The arrangements from musicals include West Side Story, Pippin, Beauty and the Beast, Once On This Island, A Little Night Music, Seussical, Ragtime, Fiddler on the Roof, and Sweeney Todd. Standards featured are by Fats Waller, George Gershwin, Kurt Weill, and Charles Mingus. These arrangements showcase the versatility of brass instruments and the theatricality of American music in New York.
