Brass Band of Louisville is an all-volunteer ensemble made up of amateur and professional musicians from the Louisville, Ky., area. Since its founding in 2014, BBL has hosted guest soloists such as Steven Mead, J.D. Shaw, and Vince DiMartino, and it was selected to perform at the 2018 Kentucky Music Educators Association Conference. While the band performs a wide variety of works, it primarily focuses on traditional British brass band repertoire, challenging itself to play at least one test piece per concert. Brass Band of Louisville is pleased to be making its Great American Brass Band Festival debut.
