Written By: David Read Comments: 0

Lancier Brass are celebrating their latest prize, this time courtesy of the Tunnell Trust for Young Musicians. Already this year, the young brass quintet, with trombonist Matt Gee, has won the Royal Over-Seas League Chamber Competition and performed a Purcell Room recital having won a place in the Park Lane Series. Following auditioning against other young chamber ensembles, the judges from the Tunnell Trust have awarded them five professional music club recitals in venues across Scotland. The two other ensembles selected are string quartets.

We make a point of offering concerts to Music Clubs even in small and remote places the length and breadth of Scotland and winners must be prepared to undergo the rigours of a Scottish winter. Tunnell Trust

It is six years since brass quintet Lancier Brass formed from players studying in London, and now two of their members - Matt Gee and horn player Rebecca Hill have recently won positions at Scottish Opera.
