The Queen City Brass Band (QCBB), was established in 1992 and we are now proudly celebrating our 21st year. The band is a community based organization that promotes music in a traditional British brass band style and is based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The brass band movement grew up from the industrial revolution in Great Britain and consists entirely of brass instruments with a percussion section. Sections within a band include cornets, horns, baritones, trombones, euphonium's, basses and percussion – all skillfully lead by musical director or conductor. The format lends itself to a wide range of music from Musicals to Marches, Mozart to Mortimer, Carols to The Classics.
