The latest epic project from the fecund musical imagination of Jazz Mafia godfather Adam Theis, The Brass Convergence fulfills a long-time dream of the Bay Area’s essential bandleader, composer, and multi-instrumentalist. Looking to enhance the sense of community amongst the region’s various brass aggregations, he’s engineered The Brass Convergence, a one-day festival featuring numerous surprise ensembles rooted in far-flung brass traditions that all heavily utilize horns and percussion (including top members of the funk and hip-hop inflected Jazz Mafia).

The program includes Jazz Mafia, Mission Delirium, and Brass Convergence.

The program culminates in a finale composed and led by Theis.
