The north west based Clinical Trial Company Group Band (TCTC Group Band) will soon be heading to Austria to take part in the Blasmusik Festival in Ellmau.

The Alpine Brass Music Festival takes place on the weekend of Friday 12th October-Sunday 14th October, with the band performing at two evening concerts in front of an audience of 3000 people as well as taking part in a 30 band parade.

This will be our first tour to Austria and we're very much looking forward to playing to such a large and enthusiastic audienceMD Jef Sparkes

Perfect

MD Jef Sparkes told 4BR: "Blasmusik Festival offers a fantastic mix of bands from all over Europe, demonstrating the rich variety of brass music and providing a fantastic atmosphere and quality musical entertainment. The picturesque venue of Ellmau also provides the perfect scenery.

This will be our first tour to Austria and we're very much looking forward to playing to such a large and enthusiastic audience."

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
