Based in the North of Somerset, Bold Brass was originally formed in 1977 as a quintet. The larger ensemble was set up in 1977 to play just one concert, which was so successful the band decided to stay together. Bold Brass has provided music for the Open University award ceremonies in Torquay and Cheltenham for over 15 years and for many years have been essential part of the Bristol Evening Post carol concert in the Colston Hall. The group also plays at concerts in Churches, indoor and outdoor music events in the UK as well in former Czeckoslovakia, Germany and France.
Our players have many years experience playing in Brass bands, Jazz and Big Bands. Their repertoire is drawn from Brass band, jazz, big band and popular brass music. Many of their arrangements have been made by past and present members and musical directors.
