Natural State Brass Band

Natural State Brass Band

The Natural State Brass Band is a 32-member British style brass band formed on July 1st, 2003 in Little Rock. The ensemble is comprised of musicians from all over Arkansas. Conducted by Dr. Gretchen Renshaw James, the band performs a repertoire that includes selections from all points of the musical compass. A typical NSBB performance will transport the audience from the rural British countryside to the Broadway stage with stops inside a grand ballroom, a cathedral, or Las Vegas show in between. From the dizzy tempo of a traditional American circus march to the breathtaking peaks and valleys of contemporary brass band literature, the ensemble offers the finest performances possible to its audiences. Also featured are some of the finest brass and percussion soloists in Arkansas, as well as guest artists from all over the world. In addition to performances in many parts of Arkansas, the band has appeared in six other states, and toured the United Kingdom during June 2010. The Band’s overseas tour featured an appearance at the British National Brass Band Championships and included concerts in several other British cities.
