Paris Brassband, French BrassBand champion in 2012, will have the honor of representing it's country in Oslo during the European championship 2013. A trip of this kind, to one of the most expensive cities in Europe, requires a big budget. Which is why we are making an appeal for your support in bringing the competition to a successful conclusion for us.


The project



Paris Brassband was the 2012 winner of the French Brassband Championship.


Brassband? What is it?! You have all heard of Marc Hermann's movie, " Brassed Off ". Miners who meet up to play brass instruments and make music to escape their difficult social condition. This type of band appeared in England  at the same time as Football . It developed mostly thanks to the organizing of competitions and trained musicians of an exceptional virtuosity. But regretably the movement stayed far from the millions of fans that Football generated.


The multiple facets of  cornets, trombones, tubas and percussions allow them to interpret classical music, film music, jazz or even pop music.




The Brass Band movement arrived in France about thirty years ago with only a few bands whilst at the same time in the United Kingdom there were several thousand bands.


The Paris Brassband, a very young band, is composed of passionate virtuoso musicians driven by the desire to play together.




Every National Championship, if won, gives access to the prestigious European championship, the most famous competition in the Brass Band world . So there are 35 musicians, all motivated by this challenge, who will be travelling to Oslo in Norway at the beginning of May 2013, where they will meet the best European Brassbands and will be hoping to stand out in their first participation in an event at this level.

« Le Brass Band est un subtil mélange entre tradition populaire et savante, au sein d’une musique festive ou saisissante, à la fois virtuose et lyrique. Les multiples couleurs portées par la chaleur et la richesse de la sonorité des cuivres donnent au Brass Band une identité et un équilibre sonore original et captivant. » Le Paris Brass Band est né de...
