brass instruments

The Belle City Brassworks Brass Band, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1988 in Racine Wisconsin by Gary King, Ken Norman, and Jim Mertins. It was initially started to give Brass and Drum Corps musicians an opportunity to continue playing their instruments after their years in Marching Drum Corps and bands.

The Belle City Brassworks has performed many concerts with High School Brass musicians from Southeastern Wisconsin, which we named "Brass A Nova".  We hand out scholarships to outstanding area High School brass musicians.

 Every season we perform a fall concert with guest soloists, and Brass A Nova musicians.  Two Christmas Concerts, and a Spring Scholarship Concert.   We wrap up our year with 2 of our favorite concerts. Graceland Cemetary on Memorial Day and our June Pops concert in Union Grove.
