Young Artists Recital 2: Connaught Brass

  • This event has passed.

A “thrilling young ensemble at the start of what is sure to be a major international career” (Great Birmingham Brass Fest), Connaught Brass are making a name for themselves as a fresh talent in the chamber music world.

Having made their debut at the Lucerne Festival and already set to perform at London’s Wigmore Hall, the ensemble’s ability to manipulate and unify sound earned them 1st Prize in the Inaugural Philip Jones International Brass Ensemble Competition 2019.

Vibrant, spirited and bold, Connaught Brass place emphasis on their friendship with one another to showcase individual musical personalities within a unique collective sound.
