Athens Brass Choir: History


The Athens Brass Choir was founded in the summer of 2002. Initially created to keep the members of the brass section of the Athens Symphony in shape during the offseason, it has since grown to include a larger number (and variety) of players, including students from the University and local secondary (and home) schools.

While the main focus of the group is still its summer schedule, the Athens Brass Choir has expanded its season in recent years to include occasional Spring and Fall concerts (as well as some special occasion performances and benefit concerts). Recent programs include all-American, all-British, and all-Russian concerts, as well as a "Christmas In July" concert and last year's "Music From The Movies" program. In June 2007, we performed (for the first time) a joint program with the Athens Master Chorale.
