The Bobcat Brass Trio, Sarah Stoneback (trumpet), newly joined member, Elizabeth Schmidt (horn), and Jeannie Little (trombone), are the trumpet, horn and trombone professors in the Montana State University School of Music. The three are also some of the Principal brass musicians in the Bozeman Symphony. This chamber ensemble presents a wide range of repertoire, from new commissioned works specifically written for them, to the classics, works written specifically for the unique trio instrumentation, as well as works adapted from other settings. These consummate musicians bring to brass trio music a fantastic and innovative perspective in performance. But, equally important to the Bobcat Brass Trio are their outreach educational performances, where they emphasize music as a lifestyle. Catch a performance by this group, and you will hear exquisite and exciting works from Poulenc to Plog. With each presentation, the trio will entertain, educate and inspire. Enjoy!

“The uplifting, energized and joyful energy of the three MSU School of Music musicians and professors who perform professionally as the Bobcat Brass Trio is clearly evident in their interviews and their music,” said Eric Funk, “11th and Grant” host and artistic director.
