DuPont Brass is a unique, soulful brass ensemble hailing from the D.C. Metropolitan Area. The group got their start when five Howard University music students began playing in local Metro stations to raise money for tuition during the Christmas season. Since then, they have grown to a nine-piece ensemble featuring brass, a rhythm section, and vocalists, and have performed in conjunction with the D.C. Jazz Festival, The Washington Performing Arts Society, and on the prestigious Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. Through their training in both classical and contemporary styles, the up-and-coming group has developed a sound that mixes genres including jazz, hip-hop, and R&B.
