Chaconne Brass perform their first recital in Turner Sims, followed by a workshop for brass students from the Music Department.

Chaconne Brass has an ever-growing list of over 50 works written for the group, a large part of which has been recorded. In addition to extensive touring with Chaconne Brass, members work as guest principals and soloists with some of the top orchestras and ensembles in Britain.
