"The richness and warmth of their sound is remarked upon by all who hear them."

This concert will be held in memory of our late Chairman, David Waterhouse, who died last month (see our News article).

"The Best of Onyx" – a stunning programme of music by Bach, Shostakovitch, Holst, Arnold and Gershwin, arranged for brass quintet.

Onyx Brass is one of the rare breed of chamber ensembles whose musical and technical virtuosity is matched by the accessibility and vitality of their presentation. Their mission is to have their extraordinary abilities at the disposal of the music at all times, and to play music of the requisite quality to reflect the status of the brass quintet as a serious medium for chamber music.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2023, Onyx Brass continues to be the leading light in establishing the brass quintet as a medium for serious chamber music, combining “staggering virtuosity” (Sarah Walker, BBC Radio 3) with the entertaining and articulate style that has become the group’s trademark.
