The NOVA Brass Ensemble, formed in 1997, with John Wright as its director, has made its presence and impact known in the community through performances at churches and various civic and social events in Northern Virginia, including the Fairfax County Park Authority’s summer concert series. Its members come from the brass section of the NOVA Symphony Orchestra, the Reunion Music Society Jazz Orchestra, and additional musicians. The ensemble performs a wide and diverse repertoire, covering a range of sixteenth-century music and the latest Broadway show tunes at its “Spring Fling,” and holiday favorites at its annual “Winter Wonderland” concert in December.
