After many months of waiting, the newly formed Champions of Brass held its inaugural concert on the weekend.

We caught up with the man with the baton who led a dream team of brass band legends in performance — Prof Garry Cutt.

Garry talks about the joy of working with a band made up of players who have a very specific and increasingly rare talent for a special kind of music making — as well as how it compared to his recent journey to direct Eikanger Bjorsvik in concert on classic repertoire.
