The ensemble was formed in 2012 to perform a “one-off” performance for a charity event, but the members enjoyed it so much that they decided to continue the relationship and undertake more engagements.

The ensemble is led by John Hopkinson, a well-known musical director and trumpet/cornet player and comprises other highly respected players from some of the leading brass bands in the area including Grimethorpe, Brighouse and Rastrick, Yorkshire Imperial, Strata and Worsbrough Brass.

They have a wide repertoire encompassing many styles of music, often featuring solos from talented individuals. The ensemble has appeared on two previous occasions at Wentworth Church, both of which were hugely successful. We are privileged to be able to welcome them back.
