Young Brass Award

BrassPass is Delighted to Announce the Semi Finalists for the YBA 2019 Award.

After a flurry of entries, which we need to thank everyone for contributing to, the difficult job of selecting eight semi finalists has now been completed, and we must say the standard of entries on the whole has been outstanding this year. If you didn’t get through to the semi finals, don’t be disheartened, keep working hard and try again next year.

So, the list of successful semi finalists are as follows:

Holly Clark :Cornet
Peter Mcdonough :Euphonium
Siobhan Bates :Tenor Horn
Frank Coughlan :Trumpet
Felix Rockhill :Trombone
Tobias Reifer :Euphonium
Sebastian Williman :Cornet/Flugel Horn
Angus Butt :Bass Trombone

Congratulations to these eight splendid musicians!

The semi finals will be on January 13th at The Stoller Hall in Manchester. Full details will appear here on the site, but if you want to reserve tickets, please go to  and their very efficient box office will have you sorted in a jiffy.
