Stockholm Chamber Brass was founded in 1988 by five young Swedes, originally only to rehearse brass chamber music together.  However, with funding from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, SCBrass decided to travel to Narbonne, France, for their first public engagement at the International Competition for Brass Quintets.  The group went on to win 1st Prize and so began its nearly 30 year career as one of the leading Brass Ensembles in the world. 
Very early on in the development of the quintet, SCBrass made the active commitment to seek out commissions from new and established composers alike, in order to enlarge the amount of original repertoire for brass quintet. Notable composers to write for the group include Anders Hillborg, Sven David Sandström, Karin Rehnquist, Christian Lindberg, Eino Tamberg and Piers Hellawell.  
To date, the ensemble has recorded 6 critically acclaimed CDs including the classics of the quintet genre. SCBrass regularly perform around the world, playing in major festivals such as the Bad Kissingen Sommer, Schleswig-Holstein, Niedesächsische Musiktage, International de Musique Sion Valais, Prague Spring, Budapest International, Internacional de Santander, Soundstream (Toronto), Vinterfest and Belfast Festivals. Alongside creating a legacy of repertoire for Brass Quintet, the group are passionate educators and regularly give masterclasses to the next generation of brass musicians.
