Who We Are
The Del Monte Brass is an all-volunteer band that performs at NPS graduations, military balls, and other campus events, as well as at various community events. The group originated as a brass ensemble but now includes woodwind, guitar, keyboard, and percussion players as well. (Learn more about our history).
The Del Monte Brass welcomes players of all abilities. No audition is required. Current members include students from the Naval Postgraduate School and other local universities, NPS faculty and staff, and residents of Monterey and other nearby towns.
Rehearsals take place in King Hall on Tuesdays from 4:30 to 6:00 PM and on Fridays from 12:00 noon to 1:30 PM. Most players have their own instruments, but in some cases we are able to provide them.
For more information about the group, please contact us. We'd love to hear from you.
