The King's Brass (Brass Ensemble)

Founded: 1985 -USA

Tim Zimmerman and the King's Brass provide innovative worship for young and old alike through the "best in sacred brass music." By teaming together, these Christian professionals from around the USA perform their original arrangements as heard on their eight recordings. For more than twenty years, The King's Brass have performed over one hundred concerts each season with three trumpets, three trombones, a tuba, keyboards, and percussion. Playing a wide variety of music from Gabrieli to hymn classics, from Händel to jazz spirituals, from Christmas carols to patriotic marches, The King's Brass uses all corners of the concert hall to lift hearts and spirits in praise.

Each year if possible, The King's Brass participates in a missions venture. In the summer of 2000, the group went to Europe to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Greater Europe Mission, the missionary organization of which Tim Zimmerman's parents were members for twenty-six years. In the fall 2002, The King's Brass was invited by the Christian shortwave radio station, HCJB, in Quito, Ecuador, to participate in a local celebration that is held every year. Quito Day is the anniversary of the founding of Quito, which is the oldest city in the world. As part of the celebration there, concerts are held which offer a special blend of Christian music with the message of hope and salvation, and Quito music which inspires admiration and celebration for this wonderful ancient city. In the fall 2004, The King’s Brass has been invited to join missionary radio ministry, Far East Broadcasting Co. and the Suwon Central Baptist Church, pastored by Dr. Billy Kim, to participate in a week of concerts in Korea. The group will be playing at a variety of schools, churches, outreach auditorium concerts, military bases and music schools over the Thanksgiving holidays.
