About

 This year (2017) Wonderbrass, Cardiff’s biggest, boldest, brassiest band, celebrate 25 years of making music in South Wales and beyond. Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you Wonderbrass25!

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, we will pull out all the stops with a collaborative, multimedia performance project.

We’ll be making films, writing and performing new compositions, developing a digital archive, running collaborative musical storytelling workshops with musicians Claude DeppaNick BriggsDr Rob Smith and Mark O’Connor and sharing the eclectic mix of  Wonderbrass experiences accumulated over the past quarter century.

Since 1992 we’ve welcomed hundreds of musicians, playing myriad instruments from harps to sousaphones – we’re inviting ALL previous members of the band to join us on stage for a spectacular, roof-raising, ear-splitting, rip-roaring celebratory performance of brand new material in 2018.

 “Wonderbrass25 is a great project as it shows clearly how local heritage can be a catalyst for lots of different activities and bring people together behind a common purpose. Thanks to National Lottery players, it has been possible for local people to identify what stories are important to them and how they want to spread the word throughout their community”.
Richard Bellamy, Head of HLF in Wales
