City of Cambridge Brass Band

City of Cambridge Brass Band

The City of Cambridge Brass band, formed in 1900, has been performing in and around the Cambridgesire area for over 100 years.  Over the years the band has enjoyed success on the contest stage, undertaken various recordings and radio broadcasts, performed on television and in high profile concerts. In recent times, the band has represented London and the Southern Counties at the National Brass Band Finals in Harrogate in 2007, performed twice in Ely Cathedral (sharing the stage, in 2010, with June Whitfield and Roger Lloyd Pack), organised a tour of local churches, performed an experimental piece for brass band and electronic instruments, featured in concerts in aid of local charities and played fanfares for the opening of the clock at Corpus Christi College. These are in addition to numerous programmes of light music in local parks, weddings, garden parties and festivals. In May of 2010 the band undertook its first ever performance outside the UK performing in Paris with Parisian brass band Brassage and also in the Parc du Champs de Mars at the foot of the Eiffel tower.

The band is available for bookings either as full band or smaller ensembles to support a variety of events including concerts, garden parties, weddings, country fairs, beer festivals, christmas caroling or more intimate gatherings.
