Pure Brass quintet - meteoric progress

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).


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.
