About Freedom Brass

Freedom Brass is dedicated to performing live music in classical, religious, jazz and contemporary settings.

The group’s repertoire includes standard classical composers of Bach, Handel and Purcell, but also includes contemporary arrangements of contemporary periods from the 40’s – 80’s, and a patriotic repertoire including works by Sousa.

In addition, Freedom Brass Dixie is a subunit of the brass quartet group with the addition of clarinet and banjo, which provide the authentic New Orleans dixieland style sound.

Performances of the group have included park concerts, wedding ceremonies, religious holidays and special events; patriotic concerts at Memorial Day and Fourth of July events.

Our musicians are active, professional players from the tri-state area.
