JERICHO BRASS BAND MEMBERS
Our members comprise the region’s premier British-style
brass band musicians. JBB is a 35 piece brass and percussion ensemble,
adhering to the instrumentation of the “British Brass Band” tradition.
Based in Chattanooga, JBB rehearses weekly and draws auditioned players
from the North Georgia/Chattanooga Metropolitan area.
Our fundamental goal is to create a challenging environment for
accomplished musicians, to celebrate and preserve the unique British Brass Sound,
and share the results of our passion with the community through
performances, education, and outreach.
We hope to achieve this objective by presenting high quality
musical performances throughout our area that demonstrate the
beauty and uncommon sounds of British Brass music, and providing
a challenging setting where selected musicians can continually
improve their brass banding abilities.
JERICHO BRASS BAND AND BRASSWORKS audition opportunities are available
for brass & percussion players
from September through May each season. We can perform music
across a broad repertoire, including classical, pops, seasonal holiday
(Christmas, etc.) appropriate for indoor or (weather permitting) outdoor concerts.
Auditions for brass and percussion players are always open for acceptance.
To secure an audition date and time, please contact Zac Schmidt at
