Welcome to the Bristol Brass Consort website

Formed (or hatched) in 1985 the Bristol Brass Consort is a symphonic brass ensemble that aims to provide audiences with high quality performances of the established brass repertoire as well as lesser known works and new commissions.

Regarded by many as the foremost brass ensemble in the South West, the Bristol Brass Consort is certainly the most active and has also taken a significant lead in promoting the work of young(ish) local composers in its past concerts at St. George’s, Bristol.

This site provides information about forthcoming concerts and events involving the Bristol Brass Consort as well as information about the group and its various activities. There is also the opportunity to hear excerpts from the ensembles d├ębut CD “Music for Metal Instruments” and details on how to contact the group.

Even more certain than death and taxes (what’s wrong with a little hyperbole) is our late summer concert at St. John’s in Axbridge. Once again, under the rather transparent guise of presenting an extravaganza of classical and light brass music, we attempt to blow into shape our summer lips.
