Connaught Brass

Presented by Saffron Hall

Part of Young Artist Concerts

Tickets from £11

Price includes a commission of £1.00

The members of Connaught Brass stood together, holding their instruments, laughing with one another

From the delicate intimacy of chamber music to a rich toned power reminiscent of a full brass band, this virtuosic and versatile British brass quintet realise the full potential of a richly diverse spectrum of music.

They are making waves at home and abroad; after prestige appearances at the Lucerne Festival and the Wigmore Hall they return with a characteristically bold and vibrant programme, from folk-tinged miniatures from Northern Europe to the lush Romanticism of the African-American Florence Price.
