Welsh Open Contest


Brunel Brass recently came 5th at the 2020 Welsh Open Contest. Here’s what 4BarsRest had to say about our performance:

Under Daniel Hall, they brought together excellent graphics, a rap singer and an outstanding ‘Best Soprano’ solo contribution from Ben Halstead on ‘Let Freedom Ring’, on a set that held a strong connection to the Porthcawl venue itself, which over 60 years ago welcomed the great American singer and civil rights activist Paul Robeson.”
