On Tuesday 11 May 2021 at 18:30, Brass Collective, a band of orchestra brass players gone rogue, will present their concert, Brass Sketches, at the NWU School of Music & Conservatory Hall.

Brass Collective is a 5-piece brass band, featuring South Africa’s finest brass players; Phil Cox, Alex Urban (trumpets), Chris Bishop

(French horn), Justin Sasman (trombone), and Danél Mecloen (tuba). They will be playing a variety of music from award-winning composers, Hobson (premiere), van Dijk, Parker, Woolfenden and Bernstein. South African composer Andrea Hobson wrote a new work for Brass Collective entitled Sketches. Hobson, now based in Jena (DE), shows her African roots fully in this vibrant rhythmic
work. Another South African work, Memoirs of a Clown, by Matthijs van Dijk will be showcased. Van Dijk has earned many accolades, among them the Priaulx Rainer Prize, SAMRO Overseas Scholarship, nomination for Kanna Award. The composer admits that this piece
has been performed once before but suggests that this might just be “the premiere of all of the notes”. Rounding out the program, Brass Collective will present works by two British and one American composer: The Golden Section by British Academy Award winner Jim Parker; Full Fathom Five by Guy Woolfended (OBE), and Selections from West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein.

ONLY 40 tickets available at QUICKET @ R100 per person
