West Wight Arts Association’s December concert will be given by the A4 Brass Quartet on December 7th at Freshwater Memorial Hall starting at 7pm.
Formed in 2013 at the Royal Northern College of Music, in their first year the Quartet won the coveted Philip Jones Brass Ensemble of the Year prize.
The quartet consists of principal players from some of the UK’s top brass bands, including Brighouse & Rastrick and Foden’s.
They are: Jamie Smith Cornet, Jonathan Bates Tenor Horn, Michael Cavanagh, Baritone Horn and Chris Robertson Euphonium.
With this unusual instrumentation, A4 Brass has actively developed their repertoire, commissioning new music, composing and arranging music themselves.
They will play arrangements and original music by Bates, Goedicke, Grainger, Bruckner and others including pieces with a seasonal tinge.
Mulled wine and mince pies will be served after the concert.
