The Northwest Brass, a variable-instrumentation brass chamber ensemble, is composed of faculty members from the University of Idaho, Washington State University, Central Washington University, and the University of Wyoming. Through outreach tours and our upcoming Northwest Brass Summer Institute, we use musical education as a tool to promote practical life skills such as entrepreneurship and professionalism. Utilizing the flexibility of our Modular Music approach, the Northwest Brass tours regularly as a quartet, trio, and duo.
