William's trumpet playing added a classical element to my daughter's wedding and added a wonderful touch to a beautiful day. I would recommend him to anyone for any occasion for which you want a classical element. His playing is world class.
Response from Best in Brass:
Thank you! It truly was a beautiful day.
Best in Brass performed at our wedding and everything about our experience with them was top notch. They are pros in every way: exceptional artistry; easy to work with; reliable; and experienced. Make your special event remarkable with Best in Brass. You will be glad you did!
Response from Best in Brass:
Thanks, Deric! It was a memorable and special experience for us to perform for your wedding ceremony. You and Maitreya were extremely easy to work with, and we all appreciated your generosity on the wedding day. We wish you all the best!
I have heard William perform at several weddings, funerals, and other events over the last 10-15 years. He is a fine musician who earned his masters in trumpet at Northwestern University, and works diligently on his craft! Extremely well-mannered, respectful, and pleasant company. You most certainly will be glad you selected Best in Brass to play at your event!
What to Expect
Currently, we can play up to two special requests that aren’t already a part of our extensive repertoire list at no extra charge. Additional requests may also be made, and we are happy to do the work of arranging and composing music specifically for your special event.
In addition to being symphony orchestra experts, our musicians are also very experienced and qualified wedding performers. In our combined experience, we have performed at thousands of weddings, church services, and similar events when we are not performing with world-class orchestras.
We are also experts in performing chamber music from the standard brass repertoire, perfect for many other events.
We take every booking seriously. Our musicians arrive early, start on time, dress professionally, and play beautifully!
We have many music samples and videos to help you choose music, and we are constantly working to add more. You can also contact us to discuss your musical ideas and the vision for your event. We can tailor the perfect set list for your special day.

Additional Booking Notes
One of the great things about booking any Best in Brass ensemble or musician is that the technical requirements for setting up are minimal. Brass instruments are entirely acoustic, can play a wide range of volumes from soft (you might be surprised how tastefully soft we can play when needed or requested) to loud, and can play indoors or outdoors and be heard well.
Usually, all you will need to provide for us is adequate space for our musicians to play and when possible a good acoustic space. All we really need are chairs (sometimes we don't even need these) and music stands for most of our engagements. If you don't have chairs and stands, it's no problem. We can bring our own. Very rarely, we our musicians may require something additional and we will be sure to let you know.
