The Brass Junkies Episode 37: Brian Balmages

Listen via


Composer, conductor and recovering trumpet player Brian Balmages sits down with Andrew and Lance despite his better judgment.

Bran started on the piano, goes on to explain how he writes and orchestrates his pieces and talks about the disconnect which sometimes occurs between what he thinks will be popular and what ends up being so.

He talks about why he likes working with groups and we learned that he has no ability to make International Date Line jokes.
