2019 RMPBB Outer Banks Retreat

 RMPBB 2019 Outer Banks Retreat January 14 - January 20. The 2019 RMPBB Outer Banks Retreat is a unique opportunity for brass players from around the world to come together to share their love of brass playing. Participants come from all walks of life: students, teachers, professionals, enthusiasts, part-time players, comeback players, late starters, etc. All are welcome in a noncompetitive, friendly, supportive atmosphere where learning and sharing knowledge is the key element to the week.

The beautiful setting of the Outer Banks of North Carolina is the perfect backdrop for the RMPBB Retreat. Participants are housed in a luxury mansion steps away from the beach fully equipped with a swimming pool, hot tub, game room, two gourmet kitchens and spectacular views of the Atlantic ocean.

Leaders of the retreat will include Associate Artists with the world's premier large brass ensemble, The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass.

Special guest Artists include the author and lecturer Dr. Richard Cox and the recent winner of the Baltimore Symphony Principal Tuba position, Aubrey Foard.
