On Saturday 21 July, Brazz Brothers together with Brazz Sisters will perform as part of the BT River of Music program at Trafalgar Square in London.

One of the leading brass bands on the international circuit, the Brazz Brothers combine instrumental virtuosity and a deep understanding of the brass tradition with spontaneous humour and wit, to create a distinctive mix of the old and the new. For this one-off performance, the Brazz Brothers will invite to the stage one “brass sister” from across Scandinavia, resulting in a 14-piece brass extravaganza.
