Saturday 28th September

Surrey Brass was established in August 2001 by John Goodwin, with the primary objective of advancing the time-honored tradition of ensemble brass performance initiated by the globally renowned Philip Jones Brass Ensemble. The group seeks to expand the audience for brass ensemble music, enlarge the repertoire, and provide enjoyment to all. Our ensemble comprises some of the most accomplished semi-professional musicians in Surrey, UK. We are particularly committed to encouraging young brass players and host at least one concert annually to involve them. We aspire to inspire future generations to join our team of talented musicians and further develop the art of brass ensemble performance.
