    The Houston Brass Band will perform on the Festival Concert Hall

    The 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 the 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, the 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.
