Onyx brass

The Christmas concert in West Wight Arts Association’s 2023/4 season will be given on December 9th in Freshwater Memorial Hall by the acclaimed Onyx Brass, starting at 7.00pm.

Celebrating its 30 anniversary in 2023, Onyx Brass continues to be the leading light in establishing the brass quintet as a medium for serious chamber music, combining “staggering virtuosity” (Sarah Walker, BBC Radio 3) with the entertaining and articulate style that has become the group’s trademark. The group’s extensive discography has received huge critical acclaim, Gramophone hail “some of the most thrilling chamber brass-playing of its kind” and Record Review (R3) describing the group as a “wonderful, virtuosic brass quintet”.

They will play a selection of pieces ranging from Bach to Gershwin and beyond, full details on the WWAA website. Onyx Brass are being very generously sponsored by two members of the audience to celebrate their Platinum wedding anniversary.

Mulled wine and mince pies will be served after the concert.

Tickets at £16.00, £2.00 students and children (booking fee applies) are available from www.westwightarts.co.uk or Totland Parish Office on 756028. The concert is selling out fast, so book soon. Parking is limited, so come early.
