BRAZZISSIMO is a ten-piece brass chamber music ensemble.  You may well ask, “What exactly is a brass chamber ensemble?”  Well, it’s a fascinating combination of four trumpets (including piccolo trumpet, various pitched trumpets and flugelhorn), four trombones (including euphonium), French horn and a tuba which comprise this captivating and exciting music ensemble. 

We perform a variety of music especially arranged or composed for this brass ensemble medium, all of which include arrangements of classical, jazz, Latin and contemporary works. 

Our musicians, past and present, represent some of the finest brass players in the San Francisco Bay Area region.  In addition to our ensemble’s responsibilities, individually we perform in orchestras, bands, smaller chamber groups, and often freelance.  Our continuing goal is to present the most enjoyable and memorable concert experiences possible.
