Coup de Past

Kickin' brass since 2012!

Coup de Brass is Yale's premier undergraduate brass ensemble, featuring the finest brass musicians from all of Yale's musical ensembles. Founded in 2012, CdB has performed at a variety of venues and made countless public appearances, from the Miami Heat's American Airlines Stadium to Yale's own Dwight Hall. We showcase a wide variety of brass literature, ranging from jazz selections, movie medleys, and classical music to other popular tunes.
