British Brass Band provides an ensemble performing experience in a wide range of musical styles in the British Brass Band musical medium. Music is selected to provide a challenging opportunity for musical growth. Students must provide their own transportation to off-campus events. There is a charge to the student to check out a department-owned instrument.

The North Carolina State British Brass Band already existed from 1962 to 2007.  This is an effort lead by combined departmental and student interest to bring the brass band into existence once again.  Unlike other ensembles, it is strictly made up of brass and percussion instruments, some of which are unique to the brass band medium (e.g., Bb Baritone Horn, Eb Alto Horn).

Students are required to pay $20 in rental costs if they check out school-owned instrument.

kkharris (Wed, 11 Nov 2015 16:09:36 GMT): Course was approved at University College CCC pending revisions to course outcomes and syllabus on 11/9/15.
tdkoch (Thu, 12 Nov 2015 21:03:23 GMT): On 11/9/15, a friendly suggestion was made by a member of the DASA CCC to provide more specific information in the Course Calendar about where the course outcomes will be addressed in rehearsals, such as “rehearsal – focus on intonation.” However, the primary purpose of ensemble rehearsals is to prepare music for an upcoming public performance, rather than to address a specific didactic point as the object of a particular lesson. Directors address all issues of musical concern as necessary during the rehearsal.
