DuPont Brass

Performance Information

DuPont Brass, a 2018/19 Mars Arts D.C. Ensemble-in-Residence, performs selections from their recent "Eclectic Soul" and "Halftime" projects. DuPont Brass is a unique, soulful, brass ensemble hailing from the D.C. Metropolitan Area. Originally composed of five music majors from Howard University trying to raise money for tuition during the Christmas season, they have now grown to an 8-piece ensemble consisting of brass, a rhythm section, and vocalists. Gaining popularity from playing at local Metro stations, DuPont Brass started out professionally playing for weddings, banquets, and other private events in the surrounding area. Thanks to the foundation laid in their earlier years, DuPont Brass has had the opportunity to perform in conjunction with the D.C. Jazz Festival, Washington Performing Arts, and on the prestigious Kennedy Center Millennium Stage.
