The King's Brass -- three trumpets, three trombones, a tuba, keyboards and percussion -- "the best in brass." From New York to San Francisco, from Chicago to Orlando, from Washington, DC to Dallas -- this thirty-ninth tour will lead audiences in concerts of worship and praise. We are now looking for musicians who have a deep commitment to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Music will be sent to each player in early April so that there will be plenty of time to learn and memorize the program. In the middle of the summer tour, there will be a five-day rest period (7/3-7/17) to ensure freshness and vitality for the group members. All round-trip travel, meals, and accommodations will be provided by The King's Brass to each concert location. Players will be responsible for their own meals and travel expenses during the five-day rest period. Each new player will receive $500.00 a week (23.5 weeks total) with returning players receiving an additional $50.00 per week for each completed tour season.

Applications will be accepted until March 28, 2017 and should include a brief resume, statement of personal faith in Jesus Christ, photo, audition CD, and three references with phone numbers (to include local pastor). 2017-2018 King's Brass members will be notified by March 29, 2017. Please forward a solo piece, etude, excerpt, jazz selection etc., of contrasting styles (no longer than 15 minutes) along with the requested excerpts posted on our web site to The King's Brass, Box 12347, Fort Wayne, IN 46863-2347.
It will be acceptable to resubmit recordings from past King's Brass auditions. We will be unable to return recordings.
