The brain-child of successful professional musicians Geoff Collinson and Michael Bertoncello, the Melbourne International Festival of Brass (MIFB) commenced in 2003. It brings together Australian and international students, professionals, amateurs and brass educators. Geoff and Michael are able to attract professionals from around the globe and, with selected artists from Australia, establish the talented core of the MIFB.

The MIFB's Honorary Patron, Barry Tuckwell, is a world-renowned French Horn player, conductor and educator and was a principal horn player in the London Symphony Orchestra for thirteen years.
