Connaught Brass are fast making a name for themselves as a fresh talent in the chamber music world. Already set to perform at London’s Wigmore Hall and in the Lucerne Festival Debut Series, the ensemble’s ability to manipulate and unify sound earned them First Prize in the inaugural Philip Jones International Brass Ensemble Competition 2019. More recently, the quintet has become Debut Artists of the Tillett Trust and gained a place on the prestigious Britten Pears Chamber Music Residency 2021.

Their programme boasts an eclectic mix of musical periods and composers, from the Baroque to the contemporary.

A thrilling young ensemble at the start of what is sure to be a major international career.
