About us

Do you love music? We do!

Chops Inc. is an award-winning, independent performing arts organization based in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
We provide performance opportunities for all
schedules & skill levels!

What makes us different?

Chops is best described as a family; we are united by our shared passion and commitment to music artistry.

We offer opportunities for all those who are passionate about music to perform. We even provide mentorships and learning opportunities for members who may have started their music career on one instrument, but wish to march with us as a brass or percussion player, or even with the colorguard.

Chops' moderate rehearsal schedule makes it easy for members to still enjoy performing while balancing school or work.



Perform with one of our ensembles! 


Let us know you want to help, and we'll let you know when and where!


Want to come to a Chops board meeting and see what happens behind the scenes?


Leave us a voicemail and we'll call you back ASAP.
