From playing in concert halls to playing in parks, from raising money for charity to regular trips to the pub - City of Birmingham are in every sense a traditional British brass band.
Engagements in Birmingham include regular performances in the city centre and taking part in a number of civic events, as well as entertaining audiences at a variety of concert venues. During the summer months, the band can be found in parks and bandstands in and around Birmingham.
The band has a broad repertoire to suit its wide variety of audiences. This ranges from traditional and modern brass band music, through classical works arranged for brass, to film/television theme tunes and arrangements of popular melodies.
Now based in the fantastic hall at Joseph Chamberlain College, we are looking forward to continuing our collaborations with them through a series of innovative concerts. We've worked with singers, dancers, actors, African drummers, film makers and composers to ensure that these concerts are unique. As a result they're attracting a growing audience, and we're building a reputation as a band that can put on quite a show!
As well as our concert schedule, the band usually enters a couple of competitions a year. Usually including the Midlands area contest at Bedworth, where we are graded in the 3rd section; and the West Midlands Brass Band Association contest at Pershore.
The band would like to thank all its audiences for their continued support.
