About Salt River Brass Band

Picture 36 brass and percussion virtuosi crafting the upbeat brilliance of a military band, the full-throated sonorities of a symphony orchestra and the warm intimate sounds of a chamber group. This is the Salt River Brass, with the versatility to program everything from light classics and marches to show tunes, folk melodies and jazz standards.

A nonprofit organization founded by its musicians in January 1988, the Salt River Brass has thrilled audiences in the Valley’s finest concert venues and across the state of Arizona. The band and its volunteer musicians are proud to present a six-concert series in the beautiful Mesa Arts Center, regularly featuring outstanding guest soloists, ensembles, conductors and new musical works for our audiences’ enjoyment.
