Brass: Durham International Festival is over for another year – thanks to all our fantastic street bands and artists that have performed at this year’s festival, and especially to you, our brilliant audience for supporting our events.
If you attended any of our events, we’d love for you to let us know what you thought by completing our visitor survey.
This year’s BRASS has seen 119 events take place over 10 days, featuring fun-filled, brass inspired performances and sold out concerts at the Gala Theatre and Durham Cathedral.
BRASS 2014 has hosted three world premieres in British Sea Power’s Sea of Brass, Fractal Sparks featuring music from Jo Hamilton and a brass-inspired set from Lanterns On The Lake, and Steamsong, a multimedia opera from award-winning composer John Kefala Kerr.
The festival also provided the opportunity for children and young people to experience performances at local schools, and towns and villages were treated to concerts from world class musicians as part of BRASS’ community tour.
We’re already preparing for BRASS 2015 and artists and collaborators are encouraged to submit their ideas and projects for next year’s BRASS:Pitch. With the deadline for submissions being Monday 13 October, be sure to find our more by clicking here.
Following showings at previous Brass: Durham International Festivals, Durham Cathedral will host a screening on 9 October 2014 (7pm) of Will and Testament – a documentary about the life of Tony Benn. Tickets priced £10 (£8 conc) are available online or by calling the Gala box office on 03000 266 600.
