Together We Breathe: callout for brass players


Australian producers Super Critical Mass have been commissioned to present Together We Breathe, a large-scale project to celebrate the opening of the Library of Birmingham, and we’re looking for players to help us make this a truly a magnificent spectacle!

A mass of brass players from the region will be positioned throughout the new library building, filling the air with a dramatic opening fanfare. From the deep throb of tuba, the wash of trombone, and the sinewy swirl

of trumpets, audiences will be welcomed to the Library of Birmingham by a forest of brass. This is a really great opportunity to part of the

opening of a crucial new cultural building in the region, and it’ll all be filmed for BBC’s Culture Show.


We are currently looking to work with existing brass bands and players who meet the following criteria:

– owns or has access to their own brass instrument

– has achieved Grade 3 (or equivalent) on their brass instrument

– is available for a workshop, rehearsal and performance on the dates detailed below

– is happy to be filmed as part of the BBC’s Culture Show feature on this event
