The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass

A cornucopia of sound

The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass is a cornucopia of sound. Led by Curtis Institute of Music alum Rodney Marsalis, cousin of Wynton Marsalis, the ensemble’s work ranges from solo trumpet to brass quintet, and more. Composed of some of America’s top male and female brass musicians, this group is dedicated to engaging audiences and bringing the joyous experience of great music to the stage.

Members of this “dream team” of virtuoso brass players have appeared on the world’s most prominent stages and performed with ensembles including the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, São Paolo State Symphony Orchestra, Imani Winds, Canadian Brass and Boston Brass.

Rodney Marsalis and Big Brass trumpet player, Tim Hudson, will be leading a master class at Free State High School. Tim Hudson’s master class appearance is supported by the Yamaha Corporation of America. YAMAHA_logomark_2010_BLACK_20110901020350639
