TRIDENT BRASS is the Naval Academy's own midshipmen jazz and swing band! Comprised of talented instrumentalists that perform a wide variety of music - from jazz to swing to rock to big band classics - Trident Brass can be seen at dances, Parent's Weekends, Commissioning Week, and many other festive occasions throughout the year.
The U.S. Naval Academy Trident Brass ensemble is an activity for midshipmen (matriculated students) at the Naval Academy, which is a four year undergraduate university. If you are interested in auditioning for the ensemble, you must first apply and receive an appointment to the Naval Academy. Information on that process can be found at the Naval Academy’s Admissions Department homepage.
Midshipmen interested in participating in Trident Brass should contact Midshipman First Class Brendan Gloyd or the Music Office at x3-2439.
We welcome anyone who is interested in joining us. Prior jazz and/or improvisation experience is required. In additional to instruments, vocalists are welcome as well!
Please contact the United States Naval Academy Music Department with any questions or comments you may have.
