North Melbourne Brass brings two trumpeters and two trombonists together, each sharing a great passion and enthusiasm for brass music. Rob Sims, Alison Wright (trumpets), Dennis Freeman and Glenn Bardwell (trombones) bring a wealth of experience to the Savage stage, having performed in orchestras and other musical ensembles, all over the world.  They will share with you the rich history of brass music through the ages and you will be able to find out answers to all those questions that you have been desperate to ask e.g. what is a sackbut, why do brass instruments have water valves? North Melbourne Brass look forward to sharing a night of wonderful music entertainment with you.

Format for the evening:

Guests will be asked to arrive from 6:00 pm in time for the recital start at 6:30 pm sharp. Please note the later start time. This will give people time to enjoy a welcome glass of sparkling wine.
