Brass bands have never been more exciting.
UniBrass is the world’s only inter-university brass band contest and sees hundreds of students from across the country compete to play the most entertaining and musically complete set. Hosted at the state-of-the-art Warwick Arts Centre, UniBrass 2016 will be the biggest year yet.
UniBrass is supported by the UniBrass Foundation, a registered charity whose main objective is to advance, improve, develop and maintain public education in, and appreciation of, the art of the brass band movement. Many musicians give up playing their instrument upon getting to university; the aim of the Foundation is to try and change this by helping to create a movement that keeps musicians involved and playing during their studies.
We also offer free public workshops during the contest day, and host our Performer's Platform, where bands and groups from a wide range of musical backgrounds are invited to perform, giving musicians from the local area a chance to perform to a large audience and gain significant exposure!
