Cory leads BrassFestUK music making into the future

Cory has recorded the BrassFestUK 2018 theme — and its now available to buy from Pennine Music.

Into the Future
  Into the Future has been recorded by Cory Band

The Cory Band, once again took time out from their busy schedule to record the new work selected by MD, Philip Harper, alongside Gavin Somerset and Christopher Bond as the winning composition for BrassFestUK 2018.

Into the Future

Composed by Max Stannard, 'Into the Future' is the follow up to 'The Spirit of Brass' and is currently proving to be just as popular.

BrassFestUK will take place over the weekend of 6th — 8th July, with the recording by Cory aiming to raise the profile of the initiative and persuade even more bands to take part.

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
