Bold as Brass

Join BOOTS for an entertaining programme specially devised and arranged by principal trumpet Hugh Davies. New arrangements of well-known tunes and original compositions.
Prepare to be blown away.

OOTS Brass quintet

Cocktail of the night: Northern Glow


“The concept of this brass concert is to present a selection of arrangements and original compositions, primarily by principal trumpet Hugh Davies, to reflect the lighter more melodic capabilities of the OOTS brass section. We are often heard, particularly in the trumpet section, playing two or three notes in a fanfare motif for sometimes the whole of a concert so this is our chance to prove that there is more to what we do than that! Music will include an original four movement suite for brass quintet by Hugh featuring all of the instruments in the group at one point or another in the lighter, circus-music style and arrangements of some famous melodies such as Over The Rainbow as well as diverse and rarely heard tunes by composers from legendary band leader Bert Kaempfert to operatic genius Rossini.”
