“Brass Explosion!”

Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Brass Band

and The Shirley Band


Sparks will fly when these two outstanding brass bands – the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Brass Band (Ian Porthouse conductor) and The Shirley Band (Tom Stoneman conductor) – combine for an evening of explosive brass music.

The concert includes music by John Williams, a virtuosic tour de force, Volcano, written by Leamington-born composer, Robert Simpson, and the premiere of a new work for double brass band by Stephen Roberts, celebrating the return of live music post-lockdown.

An unmissable opportunity to hear two of the Midlands’ finest brass bands combine as they raise the roof and turn brass into gold!
