2017 PIECE - THE SPIRIT OF BRASS Composed by Gavin Somerset was the Anthem of 2017
Could you write the Anthem of 2018?
BrassFestUK 2018 is in the process of being finalised, it will be over the
weekend of Friday 6th July to Sunday 8th July.
The anthem for 2018 will be decided through a Composition Contest, I will be looking for entries for the BrassFestUK 2018 composition contest that will be judged by Phil Harper, Christopher Bond and Gavin Somerset.
I am also looking to expand the event to include bands across the world, with bands asking if they can join in I am more than happy for the event to go global.
The website is still in progress for 2018, but here is a timeline for you to see when things will be happening.
November 2017 - Entries accepted for the Composition Contest December 2017 - Bands wishing to take part in BrassFestUK 2018 can sign up to be included on the web-site January 2018 - Closing Date for the Composition Contest February 2018 - Judging of the Composition Contest will take place March 2018 - Winning piece will be announced as the anthem for BrassFestUK 2018 April/May 2018 - The new piece will be published by Pennine Music and will be recorded by Cory 6th to 8th July - Bands across the world will perform to the public to raise awareness of the wonderful sound of brass
