Brass instruments have played an important role in the music of many different cultures. Celebrations, remembrances, tributes, and dances of all types rely on the versatility of the trumpet, horn, and trombone.

Why can brass instruments make us feel so triumphant, melancholy, sly, or reverent? Find out in this interactive experience with members of the NJSO brass section.
