Brass in Concert Festival to be live-streamed

Posted on 4 November 2019

The-43rd-Brass-in-Concert-Championship

This year’s Brass in Concert Festival in November at Sage Gateshead will be streamed live, organisers announced today.

Working with principal partner World of Brass and 4barsrest, the Brass in Concert team have made arrangements with all performers to ensure that the senior and youth championships as well as the World of Brass gala concert will be available worldwide.

Saturday 16 November will see the second Youth Brass in Concert Championship take place in the main concert hall – Sage One – from 12pm. World of Brass, featuring National Champions Brighouse and Rastrick, and euphonium virtuoso David Childs, kicks off at 7.30pm, also in Sage One. On Sunday 17 November Sage One will host the 43rd Brass in Concert Championship, presented by Frank Renton and featuring the finest bands in the land including world number one and defending champions Cory.

David Bennett from Brass in Concert said: “We are delighted to be able to make the world’s leading brass entertainment festival available to lovers of band music worldwide.

“This new arrangement with World of Brass will provide benefits for all Brass in Concert performers and we are indebted to the competing bands and gala concert participants for their co-operation in facilitating this.

“Brass in Concert’s reputation for providing high-quality entertainment is well established, especially since moving to Sage Gateshead in 2005, and our partnership with World of Brass since then has inspired countless innovations in the way the bands themselves present their programmes at the event.

“The introduction of Youth Brass in Concert in 2018 was also an enormous success and the projection of their performances around the world, along with those in Sunday’s Championship, will provide a fantastic opportunity for both Brass in Concert and the bands themselves.”

Nicki Tonge of World of Brass added: “We’re very excited to be working with 4barsrest again to make this wonderful event available to a wider audience both in the UK and around the world.

“We’ll be delivering our usual high-quality audio and video with Iwan Fox working tirelessly to bring you interviews and commentary throughout the whole weekend.”

Brass in Concert is in association with World of Brass, Banks Group and Yamaha.

The Festival will be available to watch at www.worldofbrass.tv at a cost of £12.95 for the complete weekend. Streaming of the Youth Brass in Concert competition is free of charge.
