Milton Keynes Brass
Blues, Jazz & music from "Brassed OffMilton Keynes Brass is acknowledged as the southern region’s most active and popular brass band. The band maintains a busy contest and engagement schedule which includes regular bandstand performances, music and arts festivals and charity concerts as well as competing at regional and national competitions. It supports the local community by working with charities and the local councils. Notable recent performances include playing at the UEFA Women’s 2022 semi-final, a packed Last Night of the Proms concert, supporting Sam Ryder at a local festival, and various Remembrance Day and Coronation events. Through regional and national brass band competitions the band rose from the Fourth to the Championship Section and is currently competing at the top of the London and Southern Counties Brass Band First Section league table, having won prizes in many of the contests that it has entered in recent years.
This is not Milton Keynes Brass’s first visit to Tring. As Broseley Brass they played the Court Theatre in 2008 as the band in Brassed Off, noted for the amazing Flugal Horn solo “Concierto d’Aranjuez” by Rodrigos. The band will revisit the traditional band music of Brassed Off in addition to providing a lively programme of jazz and blues.
