Type: Brass Ensemble
Location: Yorkshire area
Harlequin Brass was formed in early 1995 by a small group of top class musicians who wished to perform quality brass ensemble music in the North of England. The line up was based on the now famous combination of 4 Trumpets, 4 Trombones, Horn and Tuba made popular by the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble in the 1970's and its successor, London Brass.
A great deal of music has been written and arranged specifically for this combination of instruments by professional composers and arrangers. In addition, Harlequin Brass has been fortunate enough to have many works especially composed or arranged for it, resulting in a repertoire of over 400 pieces of music ranging from Baroque to Big Band, and everything in between!
In addition to its extensive solo work, Harlequin Brass enjoys and specialises in work with choirs. The line up lends itself very well to sharing a stage and performing with choirs of all sizes and types ranging from a small choir such as the Sheffield Cathedral Chamber Choir to a large male voice ensemble such as Bolsterstone Male Voice Choir.
