Performance opportunities abound for students choosing to continue their musical studies as a brass performance major at Mizzou. In addition to individual lessons, concert bands, marching band, orchestras, and jazz ensembles, brass students may elect to participate in one or more of the many brass chamber ensembles directed by members of the brass faculty. These include brass quintets, brass choirs, the MU Trumpet Ensemble, the Mizzou Horn Choir, the MU Trombone Choir, and the MU Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble. These ensembles perform regularly at regional and national conventions and workshops.
