Degrees of Brass

About the Artist

DEGREES OF BRASS includes members of all backgrounds and professions that include: College professors, Music Ministers, Musicians, and more. Together they believe in being light hearted and fun with education and a cultural experience in mind. Though our performers have extensive experience in the field of music education, they bring influences from a wide variety of musical heritages. Our musicians have performed in such diverse locations as Carnegie Hall, the London Olympics, for past presidents, venues in Europe and all over the United States. Combined they have SO MANY degrees from some of the top universities in the country (in and out of North Carolina). They also break the norm of the traditional musical group to develop their diverse material WITH the educator into a performance that can follow SO MANY paths. We love working with creative and ‘out of the box’ educators!

In an entertaining and informative presentation, DEGREES OF BRASS takes on themes and occasions to enhance a learning process or occasion. Using music of all ages (Baroque to the Beatles, Music of Kids to Adults) making emotional and experiential connections is the goal. Students of all ages will interact with Q/A, demonstrations, fun antics, and especially become part of the performance. Experience science with motion, sound, and astronomy; experience math through rhythm, form, statistics, and the experience economy; experience the subject of reading, writing, and interpretation; experience history through any period of history you are currently studying; and experience community, culture, and connecting with one another through the arts. Students will be enthralled with our high energy concerts that engage with students in unique ways!

Presentation Type

The presentation is a performing ensemble that is customized for an educational purpose. Primarily we are a concert based presentation group, though we are equally experienced in other formats such as masterclasses, workshops, and individual instruction. The challenge is on us, and we believe in making the educator part of the design concept. We prefer in person presentations, although can accommodate with pre-recorded or live stream opportunities from our many venues such as college campuses, chapels, and even some adventurous backdrops. Within the virtual world, we can become your local field trip you otherwise cannot attend!
