Welcome to the Home of Gloucester Brass!

The guiding principle of Gloucester Brass has always been to play music that is as enjoyable for audiences to listen to as it is for the band to play. We do not take part in brass band contests, but focus entirely on preparing for and giving public performances, which take place in a variety of venues, including churches, shopping centres, garden parties, flower shows, fetes and public parks. We have a wide repertoire, including music from musicals, film and TV themes, marches and arrangements of classical music.

The band draws its members from within the city boundaries, with a few members travelling from the surrounding district. It is always on the lookout for new members, of any age and all levels of ability, including absolute beginners. Many of its players did not start playing brass instruments until their middle age (or beyond).

In January 2017, the band decided to introduce a Beginners Band specifically designed for people who had never picked up a brass instrument in their lives. This group welcomes both children and adults who want to see if playing in a brass band is for them.

We would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in playing with us, or joining the Training band, or arranging for us to play at an event.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at   gloucesterbrass@yahoo.co.uk
