After two outdoor rehearsals, we will be meeting indoors again in August for the first time in over a year.  We are looking forward to another season!

OVMB takes the safety of our host congregations seriously.  To that end, our entire group has been fully vaccinated.  In addition, we plan to work with each individual church to help create a performance plan that its congregation will be comfortable with, potentially including the use of bell covers, continued masking and distancing, as well as any creative solutions to the needs of specific worship spaces.  We will do everything in our power to make you at ease so that you can focus on music and worship.

OVMB firmly believes that science is a human manifestation of Divine Intelligence.  Through science, we come to understand the wonders of creation, thus science becomes a way of communing with God.  As a result, we have been looking to science for guidance in this time to help us make informed decisions about how and when to perform our instruments safely.

We would not perform if we did not believe that doing so would be safe for everyone involved.  There has been a good deal of research done recently regarding the propagation of aerosols from brass instruments.  A recent study has shown that "The regions where the flow speed and particle concentrations are above the measurable background level...extend no farther than 30 cm from the instrument outlet for all instruments."  In other words, if you are beyond one foot distance from the bell of a brass instrument, those aerosols are not reaching you.     

We look forward to bringing glorious brass music back to the churches of the Ohio Valley area.  We hope to see you soon at your place of worship.
