Brass, Durham’s liveliest festival, is back for 2019 with 10 days of outstanding performances across County Durham.
As well as international street bands from Spain and Germany, we will be using cutting-edge technology to involve performers in Denmark, Norway and beyond in unique live performances with bands here in Durham. We also have a choir from Texas joining with our own Festival Chorus for a performance of Verdi’s magnificent Requiem in Durham Cathedral.
One of our main themes for 2019 is Brass and Health. We are taking music into care homes and hosting a ‘Healthy Brass’ day which will feature talks and workshops on how brass players can maintain good mental and physical health.
