ABOUT DuPont Brass
DuPont Brass is a unique, soulful, brass ensemble hailing from the DMV. Originally composed of five music majors from Howard University, trying to raise money for tuition during the Christmas season, has now grown to a nine-piece ensemble consisting of brass, a rhythm section, and vocalists.
Gaining popularity from playing at local Metro stations, DuPont Brass started out playing for weddings, banquets, and other private events in the surrounding area. Consistently touching the hearts of the community with their heartwarming testimony, DuPont Brass has been featured on WPFW’s Live at Five three times and in The Washington Post.
Through their training in both classical and contemporary styles, the rising supergroup has developed a sound that mixes a variety of genres including jazz, hip-hop, and R&B.
In their latest effort, Music Education, DuPont Brass shows us why they are qualified to excel in both the education and performance arenas of the music industry. Filled with a diverse arsenal of musical styles, they present a body of work made with every kind of listener in mind.
