All Saints Brass: The Musicians’ Company #MiddayMusic

All Saints Brass joined the Musicians' Company Young Artists' Programme after winning a Musicians' Company concert award in 2020. Here they perform a variety of Robert Elkjer’s christmas arrangements. All Saints Brass write: "When asked by the Musicians' Company if we could put together a Christmas-themed program for our Midday Music video we were delighted! Christmas is typically a very busy time for brass and this year, like almost all other musicians, we haven’t been able to put on Christmas Concerts, go busking or partake in any festive celebrations that we usually look forward to. In addition to this, the recent UK lockdown restrictions, and the group’s separation has meant that we have been unable to play together since February earlier this year. As Christmas is a time for coming together, the group has remotely recorded a selection of Robert Elkjer’s christmas arrangements to spread some festive cheer! We hope you enjoy our distanced performance of ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’, ‘Coventry Carol-Carol of the Bells’, ‘The First Noel’ and ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’. We are excited to perform again together in person, in the not-too-distant future." All Saints Brass is an exciting Manchester-based Quintet, which formed at the #RNCM in 2016. The group fuses an eclectic range of styles, having worked with a wide range of world-class musicians. Highlights thus far include performing recitals at Whitworth Art Gallery, #BuxtonOperaHouse and opening the #RNCM Brass Band Festival. All Saints are also the first brass ensemble to play as part of the Manchester Concerts Chamber Society. The group looks forward to a 2021 recital with the Musicians' Company. The group has also branched out into Competitions, competing last summer in the inaugural Phillip Jones Brass Ensemble Competition managing to secure a place in the semi-final as the youngest British Group left in the Competition. -------------------------------------------------- About our Maisie Lewis and Concordia Young Artists' Fund - All Saints Brass Musicians' Company page - All Saints Brass' Facebook - All Saints Brass' Instagram - All Saints Brass's Twitter - All Saints Brass's Website - All Saints Brass's YouTube - -------------------------------------------------- Join our weekly #MiddayMusic e-news at #MiddayMusic is supported by generous donations from members of the public, along with funds from the Musicians' Company’s Prince’s Prize which received a generous endowment in 2015 from The Eranda Rothschild Foundation and Rothschilds Bank, in memory of Leopold de Rothschild, a Liveryman of the Musicians’ Company for over 50 years.
