2019 Summer Brass Institute

Boston College hosts the 8th Annual Summer Brass Institute!

Open Week 1
June 24 – June 28
Junior Week
July 15 – July 19
Open Week 2

Senior Week

Open Weeks are open to any brass students with at least one year of study. Music is arranged to fit a variety of individual levels. Junior Week is for middle schoolers, and many opt for both Junior Week & Open Week 2. The Senior Week is designed for stronger high schoolers (and older) and features more extensive chamber music.

This brass seminar will bring together local middle school & high school brass students for five fun-filled days of brass ensemble, chamber music, guest performers, and mini-lessons culminating in a "Brass Blow Out" concert by the students each Friday.
