    The Scranton Brass Orchestra is under the direction of co-founder Cheryl Y. Boga and is presented by Performance Music at The University of Scranton. Now in its eighth season, it is a fully professional 26-member ensemble comprised of brass and percussion players/teachers from the region. The group’s performances are free of charge and open to the public, and have often featured nationally and internationally acclaimed guests, including many of the most respected brass players of our time. The group made its debut before hundreds of appreciative audience members in June 2011, and has since garnered acclaim from both audiences and musicians alike.
