The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass
Referred to as a “trumpet prodigy,” Rodney’s solo debut was at the age of 15 with the New Orleans Symphony. He went on to graduate from one of the worlds leading conservatories, The Curtis Institute of Music. The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass (RMPBB) began on the streets of New Orleans as a family owned and operated business. On the advice of the family’s musical patriarch, Ellis Marsalis, the group created a concert format that breaks the usual barriers between genres and strives to create connection between the audience and performers.
