Great Western Rocky Mountain Brass Band Festival

For 30 years, the Great Western Rocky Mountain Brass Band has brought musicians from all over the United States and some from other countries to meet on the third weekend of August in Silverton, Colorado. The music comes from turn of the century music from the Golden Age of Brass Bands.  Music by composers such as Sousa and Fillmore is featured. As you watch and listen, you will be transported back to another time, before the "war to end all wars," a simpler time. A time when the pace of life was much slower and a band concert in the evening was a big event.  A time when people could sit on their porch and watch the world go by.

Concert times are:
Friday at 7 p.m
Saturday at noon and 7 p.m.
Sunday at noon for the farewell concert 

All the concerts are held at the Silverton School Gymnasium in Silverton, Colorado. All the concerts are free.

Hope you can join us!
