The Lake Wobegon Brass Band is comprised of 30 members, principally educators and professional musicians. The band dates back to September of 1992 and the musicians have played on Prairie Home Companion shows, in Northern England and Scotland, and for schools, conventions, and festivals nationally and internationally. They perform marches, show tunes, pieces from the classic brass band literature, and commissioned works.
