  1. Would love to see updated website — group bio and concert schedule. Dismayed and surprised to see that nothing so basic is available on your website.

    I often feature Boulder Brass performances on my Baroque Show (I work at Colorado Public Radio), but there is no info online to promote upcoming concerts.

    We like to keep our audience in the loop. And of course it is good publicity for you.
    How ’bout adding this!

    1. Hi Jean – we hear you! The group has been on hiatus, but I’m working on it again. We have 2 ‘new’ CDs I’d love to send you. May I?

      Cheers – Mike Allen for BB

      1. This is the third time I’m trying to reply.

        Yes, send CDs and please send info about your 2017-18 season. We’d love to promote your perfs on air.

        AND let’s get you in to record in our studio too!

  2. I heard a piece on the radio by the Boulder Brass. Couldn’t catch the title but it was by Patchelbel. Do you know what piece was it? How do I get it?

    1. Hello Howard. You heard the Ciacona in f minor by Johann Pachelbel. Thanks for checking in!

      Cheers – BB

  3. I’m attempting to check your offerings for brass choir Christmas music. However, when I slide my cursor from Brass Ensembles down to By Genre, over to Renaissance and then attempt to scroll down to Christmas music, the menu flips to By Composer. I can’t access Christmas Music that way.

    When I go the other route – Publications > Brass Ensemble > Christmas, I get an “Oops, that page can’t be found.”

    Any help in making your Christmas publications visible will be much appreciated!

    1. Hi Ken, I’ve been having some problems with the menus in this WordPress theme and have experienced the same frustrations.

      Temporarily, may I suggest you go to Art of Sound Music (

      Click on the Signature Series Tab, Click on Boulder Brass and then filter for brass ensemble & brass ensemble with narrator under instrumentation, and Christmas under the genre filter.

      Sorry that’s complicated, but that is probably the quickest temporary solution. The listings on our page would redirect you there anyway as Art of Sound is our exclusive distributor.

      Thanks for your interest and the feedback.

  4. I wonder if you might consider brass quintet versions of some of your brass ensemble Christmas charts. For example, I really like your Veni Veni Emmanuel BE arrangement. Could it be scored for brass quintet, or would it be too “thin”?


    1. Thanks David – appreciate the nice words. I have done a quintet version of Wassail and Sussex Mummers Carol. Dave Hanson’s charts really benefit from the large number of colors and available voices to fully realize his harmonic treatment. In other words, I’m not sure they would work as quintet charts.

      Best – Mike
