Activity 24: ONE® Brass Orchestra


Created in 2010 on an initiative from Marc Geujon then solo trumpet player in Orchestre de Picardie, ONE® Brass Orchestra focuses on the orchestra brass musicians of the network. It aims at breaking the conventional and elitist image of the classical music sector while emphasing the artist profile of the orchestra musicians. The brass musicians are given an opportunity to perform transnationally and present the extent and excellence of their artistic talent. While performing specific repertoire they benefit from sustainable lifelong training.

In 2010 and 2012, in order to diversify the concert format, the ONE® Brass Orchestra performances were presented in non-traditional outdoor concert locations such as parks or heritage monuments.

The 2017 residency of 18 musicians from 5 partner orchestras is hosted by Bulgarian partner New Symphony Orchestra.

To follow on tradition, this year the ONE® Brass Orchestra will perform in famous Vrana Palace Park in Sofia (BG), on 2d July !

The attractive programme is:

  • Dmitri SHOSTAKOVICH: Festive Overture for Brass Ensemble, arranged by Bradley MIKESELL
  • Giovanni GABRIELI: Sonata Pian’e Forte 
  • Keiron ANDERSON: Choral Prelude for Brass Ensemble
  • Modest MUSSORGSKY: Pictures from an exhibition, arranged by Elgar HOWARTH
