BRASS is back in 2015 with a fantastic programme of brass-inspired events coming to Durham from 16-19 July!
We’re delighted to announce our first acts for this year’s festival - Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Cory Band and Tredegar Town Band and Benny Goodman & Glenn Miller at Carnegie Hall 1939.
This year’s festival will get a little BRASSical with the introduction of classical events across Durham which are inspired by brass music – performances include Dunedin Consort performing Monteverdi’s Vespers, Grand Tour and Buccaneer by His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts, and Red Note Ensemble’s Sounding Brass.
The National Youth Chamber Choir, Durham County Youth Choir and Durham Youth County Big Band will also come together to perform Play It Again, a unique celebration of jazz, big band and choral music.
Tickets for all these events are available now through our website, by calling the Gala Theatre on 03000 266 600 or in person at the venue.
Our festival wouldn’t be the same without family favourite Streets of BRASS, and our street bands will be back to bring the party atmosphere to Durham City on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 July.
