We bring our special brand of four-part harmony to pop, jazz/swing, barbershop, gospel, and songs from the shows.

Sunday 11 September: Ascot Brass

In 2001, a group of friends came together to provide music at a wedding. After the last guests had gone home, the friends decided to remain together as a brass ensemble and rehearse at a church in Ascot. Thus ‘Ascot Brass’ was formed!

Within a year, Ascot Brass became a full brass band of 25 members, playing at fetes and celebratory events locally.

This continued until 2005, when Ascot Brass were invited by a senior executive at Ascot Racecourse to play at the racecourse’s prestigious ‘Diamond Day’. This was when the band’s association with the racecourse began.

Later that year, the band arranged and presented its first concert. A resounding success, the concert was played to an overflow capacity audience.

Since then, Ascot Brass has performed many concerts to raise funds for local charities, as well as at various events at Ascot Racecourse, including the racecourse bandstand’s commissioning performance in 2006 and the arrival of the Olympic Flame in 2012. They also became the first non-military band to play at Royal Ascot.

The band has also developed a close relationship with the Taplow Choirs, with whom they perform their annual Christmas Concert each year. One of the band’s favourite events of the year, this concert has gained a large regular following in the Royal Borough.

Now based in Maidenhead under the leadership of Musical Director David Rudd, Ascot Brass still has a regular engagement at Ascot racecourse and continues to hold concerts to raise money for local charities.
