The Brass Choir is a large chamber ensemble specializing in brass ensemble performance. Consisting of 16-18 of the top brass players at CSB/SJU, the ensemble includes both music majors and non-music majors. They play a varied historical repertoire, from original contemporary works for brass, to light classics and hymn tunes, to Renaissance and Baroque transcriptions. In 2009, the group toured to the Bahamas, their first major tour outside of Minnesota. The Brass Choir rehearses once a week and performs at a variety of events on and off campus. Interested students should register for MUSC 242 for 0 or 1 credit.
