About the South Shore Brass Band
The South Shore Brass Band, conducted
by Charles Mann, is a professional musical organization based in
northwest Indiana along the south shore of Lake Michigan and composed
of 28 performing musicians including cornets, flugel horn, tenor and
baritone horns, euphoniums, trombones, tubas, and percussion dedicated
to the public performance of all genres of music.
The South Shore Brass Band has
attracted some of the finest musicians from around the south shore and
south Chicago region to provide the highest quality musical
performances. In order to maintain this quality, the band pays
performers with funds acquired from donations and performance revenues.
The South Shore Brass Band is also
dedicated to providing educational opportunities to students from the
south shore region by providing a limited number of exceptional student
performers the opportunity to audition for and play alongside the
professional members of the band to provide these students with quality
professional performance experience. In addition, the band endeavors to
provide, when reasonably financially possible, special arts educational
opportunities for students in the south shore region to hear
performances by providing, for example, specially funded concerts at
local schools, reduced price student admission tickets to general
events, and many other educational outreach activities.
