The Big Brass Theory was formed at The University of Texas at Austin in 2007 by students in the Butler School of Music. Since then, the group has performed a variety of works from jazz to baroque throughout the Austin area. Past performances include the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, the Texas Collegiate Women's Chorus Festival and the Central Presbyterian Church concert series. The quintet has also had the opportunity to work with Phil Smith, principal trumpet of the New York Philharmonic, and the Illinois and St. Louis Brass Quintets. The Big Brass Theory is coached by Charles Villarrubia, senior lecturer in brass chamber music at UT and tubist for Rhythm and Brass.
