In February 2013, BBC Radio 3 embarked on an ambitious project to map musical Britain; http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/radio3/posts/Radio-3s-Musical-Map-of-Britain. In recent weeks, BBC Radio 3 has been asking for information with which to adorn its musical map to create a living picture of Britain's rich musical heritage. It has also been asking for specific music suggestions which can be played on Radio 3 Breakfast. Categories so far have included Choral Music, Baroque, Sea and Coast. Now, it's the turn of brass bands! If you want to get brass bands on the map (literally!) and want to hear brass band music on BBC Radio 3 Breakfast, this is your chance! I have it on good authority that Cloudcatcher Fells will be featured next week so we're looking at the more serious side of the repertoire, preferably original works and ideally linked to a particular place in Britain. Is your band on the map yet? Bands on the BBC map so far include Brighouse and Rastrick, Flowers, Hammonds Saltaire, Hitchin, Marsden and The International Staff Band of The Salvation Army. Brass band 'pins' are also on the map for Malcolm Arnold, Judith Bingham, Wilfred Heaton and A Download Suite. It's not often that a national broadcaster offers this opportunity to feature brass band music so I hope that tMPers will get behind this project and spread the word. Let’s get mapping Brass Band Britain! Email; email@example.com Text; 83111 Tweet; @BBCRadio3 #musicalmap Write; BBC Radio 3 Breakfast, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London W1A 1AA.
