After an exhaustive search through a field of accomplished candidates, Bay Colony Brass is pleased to welcome Channing Yu as Music Director and Avi Mehta as Assistant Music Director. Channing Yu has directed Harvard's Lowell House Opera and is Music Director of the award winning Mercury Orchestra. Avi Mehta is active teaching and conducting with local school programs, as well as El Sistema from Venezuela. He has arranged several works for brass and will also serve as Bay Colony's principal tuba.
Bay Colony Brass, building on the momentum gained from a very successful year under former Music Director Matthew Erickson, is looking to a bright future with new music and more performances including a series at Longy School of Music’s Pickman Hall. Please help us welcome Channing and Avi to Bay Colony by joining us for a performance this fall. For more information about Channing and Avi, please click on their pages above.
Bay Colony Brass is one of the few large brass ensembles (or brass choirs) of its kind in the United States. Composed of twenty players, the group performs a broad range of repertoire spanning five centuries of brass and orchestral music, vocal music, Broadway shows, and even the occasional pop song. We play three sets of concerts a year plus two Christmas programs at various sites in the Boston area. Bay Colony Brass is a volunteer organization and registered 501c3 nonprofit in Massachusetts. If you would like to book Bay Colony Brass for a concert or if you would like to be on our mailing list for information on upcoming concerts, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org
