Travel Brass Quintet

Formed in 2004 by a fellow student at Tokyo University of the Arts.

In addition to conducting concert tours in various places while still in school, he has been active in various situations such as performing on TV programs, appearing in magazines, and appearing as a guest at events.

In addition, the classic performance "Picture Book de Classic" for parents and children, which was launched in 2013 and can be entered from the age of 0, has become a hot topic with unprecedented elaborate content, and tickets from all over the country are sold out in just a few years. It has grown with performances and has already mobilized tens of thousands of people.

From 2020, it will be reorganized as a new group Travel Brass Quintet + that is not bound by the existing form, and more activities are expected.

Since "Travel" has the meaning of "sound is transmitted", it was named with the hope that our music will also be transmitted.
