History of Cathays Brass:
The idea of Cathays Brass was conceived at the start of 2014 by a small group of former Cardiff based graduates. The purpose of the band is to allow all members of the community an opportunity to socialise through the medium of Brass playing.
July 2014 saw the first public performance under the name Cathays Brass as the founding committee took-over the familiar Heath Pub Quiz and turned it into a Music based Quiz featuring live music from the band as part of their fundraising and awareness night.
The first official event run by Cathays Brass to help them engage members was the highly motivational launch day on 25.10.14. This day saw support for our initiative shown from guest conductor (and Trustee) Owen Farr, the Band of the Prince of Wales Division who kindly provided rehearsal equipment for the day and composers Matthew Hall and Christopher Bond who both donated compositions.
