Led by professor of trumpet, Gil Cline, Brass Consort von Humboldt is an HSU chamber ensemble devoted to brass music new and old, with a particular bend toward historically informed performance.

This group has concertized extensively - the only university ensemble invited to perform at the annual American Conference of the Historic Brass Society.

Using replica instruments whenever possible, offerings will include: English madrigals, antiphonal divided - choir works, German "town piper" music, and modern works for brass by Hindemith, Cheetham, and other gems from the brass repertoire.
