This is a showcase concert displaying the range of possibilities when talented brass band players get together and form an ensemble.

The repertoire has to be created from scratch, but the versatility of the group as players, composers and arrangers means that there is a vast amount of music to choose from. This concert is topped and tailed by original compositions designed to display the technical prowess of the ensemble, and the arrangements in the middle cover an impressive stylistic range, with an exciting blend of the well-known and the less familiar.
