About true brass choir

True Brass Choir was founded in 2012 by motivated young professional musicians who wished to see the Brass Ensemble sound gain prominence in the instrumental music genre and be an asset to the arts culture in their home city of Long Beach. These dedicated and thriving musicians seek to enrich their community with the splendor of the brass ensemble sound through unique, live performances and educational outreach programs.

Past highlights include attending the Rafael Mendez Brass Institute at the Lamont School of Music in Denver, Colorado, where True Brass received support from music legends such as Ronald Romm, David Hickman, and Daniel Perantoni, among others, and was invited to perform with the internationally known Summit Brass in the summer of 2013. This past summer True Brass partnered with Long Beach non-profit, the Aquarium of the Pacific, to host a concert that raised awareness of the current state of Our World Ocean; True Brass was also able to commission and perform the World Premiere of a symphony composed by Casey Martin at this concert.
