Blackweir Brass

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.
