Omni Brass is an innovative, genre-bending chamber ensemble dedicated to performing and teaching a multi-style approach to music-making. As a brass quartet and a multi-style percussionist, the group has cultivated a completely unique brand of chamber music, which simultaneously delves into the world’s diverse musical cultures, and communicates a distinct musical voice that is all their own.
Omni Brass is dedicated to educating audiences, young and old. Since our inception in 2014, we have consistently combined an active concert career with meaningful teaching opportunities, Omni artists have presented at top conferences around the world, including the International Trombone Festival, the International Trumpet Guild, the Percussive Arts Society International Conference, and the Texas Music Educators Convention.
In 2016, Omni artist Micah Bell composed Omnify, a three-movement, multi-style work for Omni and concert band, which provides a meaningful performance experience for developing musicians, and combines Omni concerts with an interactive, performance experience for students,.
The Omnicamp program is an annual summer camp, which has been active since 2014.
