Sonus Brass Theater is an all-age brass and percussion ensemble that combines the precision and tradition of the marching arts with the entertainment and excitement of a stage show.
In 2018, Sonus was named Best in Show at SoundSport Atlanta and Allentown and was a Gold Medalist at the SoundSport International Music and Food Festival Indianapolis.
2019 is the fifth season for Sonus Brass Theater and is open to performers of all ages and abilities. Sonus provides all brass and percussion equipment plus instruction from professional staff members with years of experience in the marching arts.
Sonus Brass Theater is a program offering of Shenandoah Sound, a 501©3 non-profit performing arts organization in Prince William County, Virginia.
Sonus’ sister organization is Sound United, an independent drumline competing in the Atlantic Indoor Association (AIA) as an independent-A ensemble.
