Helmsley Arts Centre Performance: Bells Up! from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

The award-winning Bells Up! were the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland 2011 recipients of the June Emerson Wind Music Launchpad Prize for outstanding wind/brass ensembles. The group was formed two years ago by senior students studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. This afternoon they will play a wide variety of music, and pride themselves in being a platform through which young Scottish arrangers and composers can be heard.

This is the first performance in our new North Star Series, which aims to support young musicians whose opportunities for professional performance are limited by their own lack of financial and marketing resources.

Bells Up! Andrew McLean (horn), Cillian Ó Ceallacháin (trombone), Eoin Tonner (trumpet),
Rachel Brown (tuba), Holly Boddice (trumpet)
Tickets: £8 including Tea

FREE COPY of the Superbrass CD 'Under the Spell of Spain' with any orders for 2 or more Superbrass titles

Superbrass, the ensemble, started life in 2005 and has always been committed to working alongside young musicians to help enthuse and inspire. Superbrass is a collective of some of the finest brass and percussion players currently working on the professional London music scene. In March 2011 it recorded it's award winning debut CD, 'Under the Spell of Spain' - a deliberate and eclectic mix of original and arranged music, inspired by the vibrant country and people of Spain.

As a result of a huge number of requests, the scores and parts for all the music on the CD have now been published by Superbrass Music.

We are pleased to announce that we are now able to supply all of the titles in the series - 13 pieces in total.

To celebrate the launch of this new series, June Emerson Wind Music are offering a FREE COPY of the Superbrass CD 'Under the Spell of Spain' with any orders for 2 or more Superbrass titles (while stocks last).
