June 13 - 21, 2022 - National Brass Ensemble Academy, concert, and recording project to be held in San Francisco, CA (USA)! Gathering this group of players is the ultimate threading of a needle moment, and after 7 years we finally found the opportunity to be together again like this! This time, we are adding a week-long Academy which will offer a tremendous opportunity for any serious young brass, percussion, or timpani player to work in an intensive and intimate environment with so many of the top musicians in our business all in one place. I can’t wait to see so many wonderful friends and hear the incredible sound of this group once again!
