August 4 is the culmination of the entire Gramercy Brass Band Camp experience. We hope that everyone who participates in Saturday’s events, will bring your instrument and perform with the Massed Band in Concert on Sunday afternoon.

Each year, for the past 20 years, it has been remarkable to see how our students have progressed in just one week. Some have really been smitten by the brass band sound, and as a result, has had an impact on their decisions for the future.

Please do join us on Sunday, August 4 as we bring all of our Gramercy Brass Band Camp’s 20th Anniversary experiences to a Spectacular Grand Finale. We hope to see you there, especially to support our GBBC students!
