Part of the Notes From Home series
Founded in 1998, the Saint Louis Brass Band features some of the area’s finest brass musicians, educators and students who come together to perform classics, marches, jazz and the very best contemporary brass band music. Acclaimed by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as “one of the city’s newest treasures,” the STLBB has won awards at NABBA and the US Open Bass Band Championships. Generous financial support has come from the Missouri Arts Council, Regional Arts Commission, Ameren Illinois, the Garvey Foundation, Boeing and area music stores throughout the region.
Guest soloists with the Saint Louis Brass Band include Karin Bliznik (Principal Trumpet - St. Louis Symphony Orchestra), Gerry Pagano (Bass Trombone - St. Louis Symphony Orchestra), J.D. Shaw (Boston Brass co-founder and horn), Christine Brewer (Grammy award-winning soprano) and Demondrae Thurman (Professor of Euphonium, Indiana University).

He has given performances in Canada, Hungary, Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, France, Spain, Taiwan, Macau, Norway, China, Italy, Austria, England, Wales and throughout the United States. Demondrae is a frequently invited guest at many of the world's most noted festivals and conferences for Low Brass including the International Euphonium Tuba Conference, Jeju International Brass and Percussion Competition, the United States Army Band Tuba Euphonium Workshop and the Leonard Falcone International Solo Competition.
