Boston Symphony Orchestra brass teachers and their students join forces.

NEC brass students perform with their BSO teachers. Founded by NEC brass and percussion chair Frank Epstein, who is himself recently retired from the BSO, Brass Bash puts the spotlight on current and former Boston Symphony Orchestra members who teach at NEC, along with their students.
