Collective Brass delights and inspires audiences with classical and jazz favorites, beautiful melodies, and breathtaking energy. Beautiful, Bright and Fast features music originally written for brass, as well as music by Bernstein, Bach, Monteverdi, Mozart, and Debussy.
Founded in 2016, Collective Brass is an energetic chamber group that performs a broad range of exciting and virtuosic music. Members Carl Stanley, Alaina Alster, Keith Kile, Drew Mangus, and Bill Owens have trained at prestigious music schools and conservatories nationally and now hold positions in major performing ensembles in New York. In addition to performing traditional and contemporary brass chamber music, Collective Brass continues to create original arrangements and editions of early music for brass – much of which was recently recorded on the acclaimed album, In Thy Sweet Name.
