Do you want to be part of a new Crosspool-based brass quintet?

Former British Army musician and Nicholas Barrett was part of similar groups during his time in the forces and is looking to set one up in Crosspool.

The Crosspool resident explains: “Inspired by the world-famous Canadian Brass, the group will perform a mix of musical styles. Initially it would be a rehearsal group, but we’d have a view to performing at community, charity and professional events.

“It would be great if we could have more players so we could pull from a pool to perform. There’s no age restriction, we’re just looking for committed players who want to make a good sound. The ideal standard would be grade 5 and above.”

Nicholas is looking for the following players:

  • Trumpet or Cornet
  • Trombone
  • French Horn or Tenor Horn
  • Tuba

Crosspool Brass is also looking for a local pub function room or community space to allow us a couple of hours a week to rehearse if possible.

If you or anyone you know would be interested in joining this group Crosspool brass group or have somewhere we can rehearse, get in touch via @crosspoolbrass on Twitter, Facebook or enquiries@trumpetman.co.uk.
