The New England Brass Band brings cosmic (definition: inconceivably vast) classics to an intimate auditorium by replacing a large orchestra with a small brass band and suitable musical arrangements. Our unique program brings a 30-piece brass band, an 80-voice choir, 2 female vocal soloists, a concert pianist and a classical organist to a 627-seat venue for 2 hours each on a Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. The classics we bring are as big as the BBC Proms at Royal Albert Hall! We bring the best parts of many classics instead of just one classic. We offer something for everybody:

  • Strauss: Also Sprach Zarathustra—opening
  • Wagner: Tannhauser—Grand March/Pilgrim’s Chorus
  • Holst: The Planets—Uranus & Jupiter
  • Liszt: La Campanella
  • Sibelius: Finlandia & Organ Symphony—finale
  • Mahler: Resurrection Symphony—finale
  • Williams: E.T. The Extraterrestrial—world premiere
  • 30-piece band
  • 80-voice choir
  • Professional soloists—soprano, mezzo soprano, organist, pianist
  • Weekend venue with 1,881 available seats, fantastic historic organ, Steinway grand piano, superb acoustics
  • CDs/DVDs for those who can’t attend in person!

Among the favortie selections are two world premiere arrangements for brass band, choir, organ and piano:

  1. John Williams’ “E. T. The Extra-Terrestrial” []
  2. Mahler's “Resurrection” Symphony [] (the best parts of the 5th movement and finale).
