For more than 30 years, Boston Brass has set out to establish a one-of-a-kind musical experience. From exciting classical arrangements to burning jazz standards and the best of original brass repertoire, Boston Brass treats audiences to a unique brand of entertainment that captivates all ages. The quintet plays to audiences at concert halls, educational institutions, and music festivals, and regularly collaborates with orchestras, concert and marching bands, organists, jazz bands, and a variety of other ensembles.

The Boston Brass has performed in all 50 states and 30 countries and has conducted masterclasses around the world including sessions and residencies at the Eastman School of Music, The Juilliard School, Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, Peabody Conservatory of Music, University of North Texas, Royal Academy of Music in London, Yong Siew Toh Conservatory at the National University of Singapore and Mahidol University in Bangkok.

Over the past 84 years, Wolfeboro Friends of Music has provided music to the residents of Wolfeboro and the Lakes Region through ticket sales, advertisers, sponsors, and donors to sustain its musical performances, educational programs, grants, equipment, and lessons to students in the Governor Wentworth School District, as well as providing full tuition grants for middle school and high school music students to attend the University of New Hampshire’s prestigious Summer Youth Music School.

For the 85th virtual season, Wolfeboro Friends of Music has provided our last year’s advertisers and sponsors an additional year’s credit at no cost to them.

Wolfeboro Friends of Music would be immensely appreciative if any music lover/supporter would consider a donation to Wolfeboro Friends of Music to help pay for free virtual concerts this season. Donations may be made at wfriendsofmusic.org or sent to P.O. Box 2056, Wolfeboro, NH 03894.
