Nidaros Brass looks forward to return to settled music making

After having to cancel rehearsals, concerts and a tour to the UK, Nidaross Brass Band is mow looking forward to the future.

Nidaross
  The band has gained a highly respected reputation for their music making

The Nidaros Brass Band from Norway is looking forward to getting back to the normality of regular rehearsals and concerts following the relaxing of the Coronavirus guidelines and regulations.

Formed in 2003, the band has gained a widespread reputation for their friendly form of brass band music making — one that has seen a remarkably settled line-up of players enjoying the experience, very few changes over the years.

Cancellations

A spokesperson told 4BR: "Like bands all over the world, we also had to lock down and cancel rehearsals and concerts in mid-March. This included one at Nidaros Cathedral with Maurice Hamers as guest conductor and tuba star Øystein Baadsvik as guest soloist, which we unfortunately had to cancel at just four days notice.

In June we also had to postpone a much anticipated tour to the UK to play concerts with Woodfalls Band and our good friend Bob Childs, and City of Southampton (Albion) Band.

Now there is some light at the end of the tunnel and we hope to organise this tour for 2022. We have lots of great concert plans for the next two years and hope to be back on track from August."

New moves

The band has said a fond farewell to flugel player Mette Stene Ertsgaard after enjoying 15 year paying with them. Edvin Langmo who has played principal cornet for the past three years will move to flugel with Kristin Hetland, who joined in 2019 taking his place. Kristin is a trumpet/cornet player with the Royal Norwegian Air Force Band, located in Trondheim.

Meanwhile, Kathrine Eggen who has helped the band over the last three years will now be a permanent member at the solo cornet section.
