Brass band on steps

‘UniBrass’ is the university brass band championships of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Competing at the host institution of the University of Sheffield for 2022, and under the baton of Stuart Birnie, the band played a programme, which included the programmatic and entertaining The Home of Legends by Paul Lovatt-Cooper, as well as a performance of Song of Hope by Peter Meechan. However, the climax was their performance of Lock Horns/Rage On by Simon Dobson

The band’s sixth place finish was a highlight of the academic year for the University in an increasingly competitive Trophy Section and, with almost 50 players on stage, Birmingham were the largest band to play.
