UniBrass 2019 Contest and Gala Concert at Pontio

Main Arts Building, Bangor University, Bangor, Gwynedd, LL57 2DG, Wales

From Bangor to Bristol; Cambridge to Cardiff, UniBrass 2019 will see university brass bands from across the UK descend on Bangor for a day of music making at the annual University Brass Band Championships of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

UniBrass 2019 takes place at Bangor University on Saturday 2nd February, and features a two section contest with 21 university brass bands from across the UK. Each band will perform an entertaining 20 minute set and it will be up to the adjudicators to decide which university walks away with the silverware.

With great music, and a great atmosphere, brass bands don’t get more exciting than this. To round off the contest, UniBrass are excited to welcome Tredegar Town Band to perform at the Gala Concert. The concert will celebrate brass banding, paying homage to the band’s Welsh roots and UniBrass’ debut in Wales.

There will also be a free public workshop for brass and percussion players from the local area to take part in. Working alongside professional musicians, the workshop will culminate in a public performance during a break in the Shield Section of the contest. More detail about the workshop and a sign-up form will be available on the UniBrass website.
