Surrey Brass

Surrey Brass plays a wide, innovative and entertaining repertoire to a high standard, incorporating fresh influences from diverse musical sources including Classical, Jazz, Film, and World Music.

Surrey Brass aims to promote the Arts in all its forms and is keen to form new performing relationships with Arts organisations, composers and arrangers in the county of Surrey. We also aim to perform at least one Charity concert every year and have raised many thousands of pounds for various causes including Age Concern, Tsunami relief, help to the Third World, Amnesty International, and fundraising for a new Village Hall in Elstead, Surrey. 

We commission new music whenever we can. Previous commissions include music to accompany the silent films of Cecil Hepworth, a major piece to commemorate Concorde, which was premiered in the hangar at Brooklands, and the "Energy Suite", a major jazz-based work drawing attention to man's relationship with energy over the ages.

Surrey Brass was founded in August 2001 by John Goodwin and aims to develop the fine tradition of ensemble brass performance originated by the internationally famous Philip Jones Brass Ensemble, by widening the audience for brass ensemble music, enlarging the repertoire, and providing enjoyment for everyone. Our talented musicians include the best semi-professional players in Surrey, UK.
