2021 Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass Outer Banks Retreat

The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass 2021 Outer Banks Retreat January 17-January 23

The 2021 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 non-competitive, friendly, supportive atmosphere where learning and sharing knowledge is the crucial element to the week.

The beautiful setting of the Outer Banks has for more than ten years been an amazing backdrop for the retreat. Participants are housed in a luxury mansion steps away from the beach fully equipped with an ocean view hot tub, a game room, a gourmet kitchen, and spectacular views of the Atlantic ocean.

Included in the fee for the retreat is one week of lodging, four dinners, five days of seminars and masterclasses, and ensemble practice. Seminars, masterclasses, and ensemble practice will be led by the world-class Associate Artists of The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass.
