Best of Brass (BoB) (AU)
Chris Williams: Trumpet, flugelhorn, piccolo trumpet
Nathan Schilling: Trumpet, flugelhorn, piccolo trumpet
Armin Terzer: Horn
Greg Aitken: Trombone
Warwick Tyrrell: Trombone
There’s nothing like the sound of five brass instruments to get an audience to sit up and take notice. With trumpets, trombones and a French Horn, BoB play music written by composers from across the world: tango legends, Australian waltzes, classical masters and Kazakh folk music.
Famous for their dynamic, larger than life performances, BoB are also experts at explaining where the strange, bendy metal tubes they play come from, and how they work.
Best of Brass perform in English, with Cantonese translation when required.
