SCV BRASS ENSEMBLE
is perfect for brass musicians looking to further their skills and musicianship in a fun and challenging atmosphere that builds on the excellence of local school band programs.  This type of ensemble allows each player a higher level of musical engagement and responsibility than is typically experienced in orchestra or band playing.  It also completes our collection of ensembles and provides a pathway into our Youth Orchestra and advanced ensemble, Novae Sinfonia.
