The Grammy award winning Chestnut Brass Company has earned international acclaim for brilliant performances on both modern and historical instruments. Since beginning as a street band in Philadelphia in 1977, they have performed in 49 of the United States and in Europe, Asia, South America, Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean. They have been guest performers at noted venues and festivals including Italy’s Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Munich’s Gasteig, the Académie Internationale de Musique in Dijon, France, and the U.S.A.’s Wolf Trap Farm and National Music Camp at Interlochen. The ensemble is equally committed to the music of the past and present, performing and recording on brasses and wind instruments from the Renaissance, such as cornetti, "natural" trumpets and sackbuts, and the nineteenth century, including families of keyed bugles and saxhorns. They are active in commissioning and recording new works for modern instruments from composers representing a wide variety of contemporary styles. The Chestnut Brass Company has released twelve CD recordings, winning awards, including a recording of brass music by Peter Schickele, which won the Grammy award for Best Classical Crossover Recording in 2000.
