HOW DID THEY GET THEIR NAME?!? WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?
In 1985, once we began to perform publicly, a name for the group became priority #1. It was important that the name blended both medicine and music. After much consideration, we chose the name “Auscultation Brass”. The dictionary defines auscultation as:
aus·cul·ta·tion /ˌôskəlˈtāSHən/ noun - the action of listening to sounds from the heart, lungs, or other organs, typically with a stethoscope, as a part of medical diagnosis
Our logo, seen above, includes the earpiece of a stethoscope blended into the bell of a brass instrument.
