The Ithaca Brass was established in 1966 as the resident brass quintet of the Ithaca College School of Music, making the quintet one of the very first groups of its kind. Since then the Ithaca Brass has performed programs throughout the United States at regional, state, and national conferences of educators and professional music organizations. Through the years they have performed hundreds of concerts for schools from elementary to high school as well as community and college concert series throughout the Northeast.

The Ithaca Brass is responsible for several commissions including works by Chuck Mangione and Malcolm Lewis, and they have recorded on the Mark Records and Golden Crest labels. Each of the members of the quintet, which is composed of the Ithaca College brass faculty, has significant credentials as a performer and teacher, and the group is conversant in virtually every musical language ranging from classical to jazz.

The members of the Ithaca Brass are Frank Campos, trumpet, Kim Dunnick, trumpet, Harold Reynolds, trombone, Alex Shuhan, French horn, and Aaron Tindall, tuba.
