2022 Highlights

We are grateful for everyone who has supported Seraph Brass and our mission this past year! Looking back on 2022, we had a busy season of performances, residencies, and touring. We also want to thank all of our new supporters, with 22 new donors helping us raise over $1,000 to help fund our projects, including commission and consortium projects, performer fees, tour expenses, album recordings, and more. If you missed out on our giving Tuesday fundraiser but would like to support us with a tax-deductible donation to help fund our initiative, you can visit: https://www.seraphbrass.com/support

We toured coast-to-coast, putting on over 30 performances and over a dozen workshops in Arkansas, California, Georgia, Florida, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin. We were ensembles-in-residence with many institutions and festivals, including Artosphere Festival (Fayetteville, AR), Oakland University (virtual), Old Dominion University (Norfolk, VA), Pittsburg State University (Pittsburgh, KS), University of Nebraska-Omaha (Omaha, NE), the Virginia Arts Festival (Norfolk, VA) and we are on the 22-23 tour roster for Live On Stage
