Western Reserve band returns for 9th year

The vibrant brass band sound that has become a staple of the Chautauqua season returns to the Amphitheater at 2:30 p.m. Sunday when the Brass Band of the Western Reserve graces the stage once again.

Now in its 14th year, the group of brass players and percussionists from Northeast Ohio has grown to become of the country’s elite brass bands, competing year after year in the Championship Section of the North American Brass Band Championships. They have performed at Chautauqua every year since 2004.

“When we play, we give our everything in terms of making music,” said the band’s director, Keith M. Wilkson, in a previous interview with The Chautauquan Daily. “We play high quality, and we play good repertoire, so we don’t hold anything back.”
