The RMPBB retreats have been an ongoing offering that we have made to increase access and education about the highest level of brass playing. The 2020 RMPBB Virtual 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.

Included in the fee for the retreat are ten days of seminars and masterclasses led by the world-class Associate Artists of The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass. Guest speakers will include some of the world's leading brass performers, music industry agents, and arts administrators.
