Houston Brass Band at Round Top Festival Institute
Houston Brass Band will return to the Festival Concert Hall stage at 3:00 pm on Saturday, November 16. Led by Houston Symphony trumpeter Robert Walp, the band will perform a lively and entertaining program of British brass band music.Houston Brass Band was formed in 2000 by several brass music enthusiasts, inspired by the British film Brassed Off, and was a casual ensemble. In 2006 HBB asked Robert Walp to coach the cornet section. Mr. Walp, Assistant Principal Trumpet of the Houston Symphony, worked with the cornets, then the entire ensemble. The group's enthusiasm led to Mr. Walp becoming that Band's first Music Director. Under Robert Walp's expert direction, Houston Brass Band began a period of significant improvement, transforming it from a local community group to the professional-level organization you see and hear today.Adult $25.
