About the ensemble

BRAZZISSIMO is a ten-piece brass chamber music ensemble that performs music of the Classical, Jazz, Latin and contemporary music idioms with emphasis towards developing audience-inspiring programs. We are based in the Bay Area region of northern California and have performed nearly one hundred concerts since our inception twenty years ago. 


Our basic instrumentation consists of four trumpets, four trombones, a French horn, and a tuba. And, with in-house composers and arrangers, our musical adventures are limitless. 


OUR MISSION: to perform music that is truly audience accessible with true interpretations of brass chamber literature.

OUR GOAL: to present the most enjoyable and memorable concert-going experiences possible, to you!
