    On Saturday 6th March at 7.30pm, expect an exhilarating evening's entertainment from City of Bristol Choir, Exultate Singers and one of the UK's top brass bands, Gloucester's Flowers Band. Under the direction of conductors David Ogden and Paul Holland, they join forces to perform Philip Wilby's Brontë Mass - combining the poetry of the Brontës with the words of the Latin Mass, in a stunning work full of bold, romantic, sonorous textures.

    The second half of the concert is packed with spectacular and uplifting music from the films and the brass band world. A selection of Suites from film scores by John Williams, the world’s most successful film music composer is combined with the music from James Bond, Brassed Off, and the Mission. All this will be memorably performed by one of the UK’s leading brass bands in collaboration with 120 singers.

    Paul Lovatt Cooper is one of the most sought after composing talents of his generation in the brass band world, and his piece Walking With Heroes needs to be heard to be believed - this is brass band music at its most flamboyant and uplifting.

    Come and enjoy feel-good music for the start of Spring. Don’t miss this unique event in Bristol’s musical calendar.

    Ticket Prices: £18, £15, £12 - Tickets available from Colston Hall box office on 0117 922 3686
