A4 BRass Quartet
  The A4 Brass Quartet will both adjudicate and perform at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire

The award winning A4 Brass Quartet will be performing at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire on Monday 14th January as part of their visit to adjudicate students ensembles hoping to win the prestigious Bernard Brown Prize.

Concert recital

The A4 Quartet who have themselves claimed the Royal Overseas League and Royal Philharmonic Ensemble prizes, will be using that experience to pick the winner of the prize before providing their own recital performance at the Conservatoire's Bradshaw Hall at 7.00pm

The Bernard Brown Prize is open to all undergraduate, postgraduate and Personal Study Programme students and sees the candidates provide a programme of about 15 minutes in duration.

Talented

A spokesperson for the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire told 4BR: "We're delighted to welcome the A4 Quartet for this important competition featuring many of our most talented students."

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?
