The Westerlies are a New York based brass quartet comprised of four friends from Seattle, Washington. Avid explorers of cross-genre territory, the Westerlies are a collectively run ensemble dedicated to the cultivation of a new brass quartet repertoire that exists in the ever-narrowing gap between American folk music, jazz, classical, and indie rock. The Westerlies have premiered over 40 original works for brass quartet since their inception in 2012. As a horn section, the Westerlies have worked with new music mavericks Bill Frisell and Wayne Horvitz, Relatives, Juilliard Dance, and Mason Jar Music. Members of the Westerlies currently study at The Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music.
