The students of the brass department participate in the ensemble activities of the Lyon CNSMD: orchestra, chamber music (brass quintet, variable geometry ensembles, etc.)
Thanks to seminars, master-classes and teacher exchanges with partner institutions in Europe and further afield, students widen their experience through this extensive contact with a wide range of artistic experiences and approaches to musical culture.
The conservatory brass ensemble perform regularly in concert with invited conductors such as Antony Plog, Eric Crees, Jean-Pierre Mathieu, Roger Bobo, Rex Martin, James Gourlay, Marc Lys, Philippe Ferro, etc. and the teachers Thierry Caens, David Guerrier and Michel Becquet, Head of Department.
