Derwent Brass Spectacular

Derwent Brass are proud to host


 October 28, 2012 at Burton Town Hall.


The day is split in two halves – the first a FREE afternoon workshop for both brass performers and composers, kicking off at 14:00! This is being hosted by World Famous Euphonium Virtuoso Steven Mead together with a session for the composers out there by the 2012 European Composers Champion Paul McGhee! The workshop is open to anybody – groups, individuals, schools, bands, students, etc. All we ask is that you bring your instrument (or borrow one!) – this workshop is perfect for those looking to progress at secondary/academy and student level but all are welcome. Afternoon refreshments will be provided.


The second half is an evening concert, starting at 19:00, (doors open at 18:30) open to all featuring Derwent Brass and Steven Mead. Also showcased in the concert will be a feature by the workshop ensemble, conducted by Steven himself! This is your chance to be on stage with some of the midlands best brass musicians from Championship Section Derwent Brass and the world famous Steven Mead.


Again the workshop is FREE! no strings attached. The evening concert is also discounted when tickets are purchased in advance – buy now and save 10% making your ticket only £9!
