Pure Brass is on the up and up at the moment. A little bird tells "Whittaker" that they've -
- been on the competition trail with great success in recent weeks;
- been accepted onto the Tillett Trust, which leads to engagements around the UK and a shared recital in the Wigmore Hall on 28th November;
- been accepted onto the Worshipful Company of Musicians' Maisie Lewis/Concordia Concert Platform, again meaning a shared recital in the Wigmore hall either late 2011 or mid 2012;
- been shortlisted for the Park Lane Group (a recital in Purcell Rooms is the prize).
NOT ONLY BUT ALSO ...
Pure Brass has made the final for the Royal Overseas league competition - do fingers even need crossing?
And to top it all, individual members of the ensemble are having significant successes of their own, too.
An ensemble to watch.
