Blackweir Brass - Brass Quintet
Consisting of five young, but experienced musicians from the
Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Blackweir Brass was
established in early 2016.
We draw influence from many sources, given our varied
backgrounds in performance. While some of us hail from areas with
strong brass band tradition, the rest have spent time playing with
wind bands, symphony orchestras and even in pit bands for musicals.
Also taking inspiration from famous brass ensembles like that of
Philip Jones, Septura Brass and Canadian Brass, we aim to bring a
mixture of styles to our performances. As a result, our repertoire
covers everything from Baroque to Contemporary, with some
interesting departures and detours in between.
