About BWB

Blue Waters Brass was formed in the fall of 2011 by several St . Olaf College friends who were looking for a musical outlet after graduation. The ensemble performs regularly in the Twin Cities area and is known for its wide variety of repertoire spanning the genres of classical, bluegrass, march, jazz, renaissance, contemporary, and locally composed works. BWB is an active participant in the communities of its members and has undertaken several collaborative projects with other local groups.
