About
The Chamberlain Brass is one of the most exciting and versatile chamber music groups in New York City – bringing together multiple styles & eras, fresh arrangements, and the unique sound of a brass quintet. From the renaissance to baroque, classical to jazz, and pop to Broadway, The Chamberlain Brass combines exquisite musicianship with wit and flair. With five of the finest brass players in New York City, The Chamberlain Brass is a musical gem.

The Chamberlain Brass musicians play with the finest ensembles in New York - The New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, St. Luke's Chamber Orchestra, American Symphony Orchestra, Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society, Radio City Music Hall. Our musicians studied at Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, Eastman School of Music and New England Conservatory.

We, as a brass ensemble, are the perfect choice for large halls, churches, or outdoor spaces where you need a strong, rich sound -- without amplification. Other ensembles, such as string quartets, will simply not fill up the space like a brass ensemble. It really is a wonderful, classic sound.

We look forward to working with you!

Below are answers to questions we frequently receive about brass wedding music, the difference between The Chamberlain Brass Quintet and a traditional New York wedding band, how to choose instrumental/classical wedding ceremony music, pricing, bookings, and much more. If your question does not appear below or the answer is not satisfactory, please contact us.

Why should I choose The Chamberlain Brass Quintet to play instrumental wedding music at my ceremony?

There's nothing quite like the mood brass music creates; brass wedding music is the perfect choice for discriminating couples. Professionally played by the The Chamberlain Brass Quintet — not an ordinary New York wedding band — this brass ensemble will move you and your guests with beautiful, traditional wedding music, making your ceremony an elegant, memorable, once-in-a-lifetime affair.

Which brass instruments are played?

We follow the standard configuration for a classical brass quintet, which is:
- Two Trumpets
- French Horn
- Trombone
- Tuba

How can I hear The Chamberlain Brass Quintet's music?

Simply go listen to our audio samples to play our most popular wedding ceremony music. If you don't hear what you need, we can create custom arrangements to suit your needs; just ask.

Is it possible to hear The Chamberlain Brass Quintet perform live before my wedding day?

There's nothing quite like hearing your brass wedding music, live! Most of our perfomances are at private events, but we do sometimes play in public where you can hear us. Contact us for more information.

What types of brass wedding music do you play?

We play classical, jazz, and traditional wedding music. On the Samples page, popular instrumental wedding music can be heard. Again, if you have other selections in mind, please talk to us.

My wedding is going to be outdoors. Is brass music a good choice for an outdoor wedding?

Brass wedding music is especially suited for an outdoor ceremony, or any large event. Traditional wedding music instruments like the organ, string quartet, or flute/harp duo can't fill a large space without amplification. This affects the sound. Brass instruments need no amplification, and have a bolder, richer, more impactful sound than a string quartet.

My wedding is indoors, but the church is large. How will brass wedding music sound in a space like this?

Our brass wedding music is ideal for cathedrals, large churches, and ballrooms. Again, smaller instruments require amplification, which cheapens the musical experience. Ultimately, the size of the hall or outdoor area and how many people are there will affect how the instruments sound. When we discuss your wedding day, we'll tell you what to expect in the actual space where we'll be playing.

How much does it cost for you to play at my wedding ceremony?

Depending on the distance from New York City and whether or not you choose to have brass wedding music during the cocktail reception, charges range from $300 to $1,500.

How much do you require for a deposit?

Twenty percent is required when you reserve the date; the balance is due on or before your wedding day.

What geographic areas do you serve?

We perform in the five boroughs of New York City, plus Long Island, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

For how long will you play at my wedding?

We typically perform wedding ceremony music that includes:
- Prelude while your guests are being seated
- Two- or three-tune processional music
- Music during the ceremony
- Recessional tune
- Postlude (music as your guests leave)
- Cocktail hour music (light jazz) is often added because it provides a tasteful, elegant accompaniment for the period before your guests are seated for the reception.

This is the second year that we have used the Chamberlain Brass Quintet. We have found them to be accommodating, professional and very talented. They played a variety of holiday songs at a volume that was perfect for listening but also having conversations with other guests. They are extremely easy to work and communicate with. We would definitely recommend the Chamberlain Brass Quintet, and would certainly hire them again.

From start to finish they were very professional. Communication was open and effective, and they provided excellnt music at my wedding ceremony at a price you can't beat anywhere. They even came out to rehearse with the organist before the wedding.

Chamberlain Brass Quintet performed for our church Christmas party in December 2011. We were extremely pleased and satisfied with the music they performed at our event. They were very professional and responsive throughout the process; I never had any problem getting in touch or asking a question. They were flexible with our schedule and a last-minute room change at the banquet facility. They played the music we requested and supplemented our requests with other appropriate and well-chosen pieces. The music was beautiful but not overpowering. They are very talented and reasonably priced too! I highly recommend this group and would definitely book them again.

NY Chamberlain Brass Quintet was great. Very organized, easy to communicate with. They showed up early to our ceremony to set-up and practice with our singer, they sounded great throughout the ceremony, and sounded even better at our cocktail hour. I cannot recommend them enough!

The Chamberlain Brass Quintet did a great job playing before and during our wedding ceremony. We gave them a slightly unusual set of piece requests, and the quintet was more than accommodating -- they were even willing to learn and play a piece that we had a family member arrange for them. The brass instruments sounded wonderful at our outdoor ceremony: lots of warmth and fanfare! Franco, who heads up the quintet, is also very responsive and easy to work with. I would highly recommend the quintet to anyone.

Excellent talent. I would highly recommend. There was a fluke with my wedding and a performer was switched out last minute. I believe that created some level of confusion because there was no music playing 20-30 minutes before the ceremony started as I requested. I was not too thrilled with that, but other than that they did a great job.
