UniBrass 2018

Wednesday 8 November, 2017

As momentum gathers for UniBrass 2018,
the committee has announced further
details for the event, including details
for the Gala Concert and information for
registering bands. In the last few years,
the Gala Concert has become a key part
of the UniBrass atmosphere, with the
intention of bringing a top brass band
to inspire future generations of brass
players. This year’s Gala Concert - also held
on 17 February 2018 at the York Barbican
- will feature nationally renowned group,
Tubular Brass. With the familiar form of
a traditional brass band, Tubular Brass
sets out to bring brass band music to the
masses, through new arrangements of
modern and popular music - most notably
Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells.
Tickets for both the contest and gala
concert are now on sale! Visit the
Barbican’s website on www.yorkbarbican.
co.uk/whats-on/unibrass/ to pick up your
tickets, where there are special rates for
those wanting to attend both the contest
and gala concert. Keep an eye on the
UniBrass website and social media for
upcoming announcements about the day
