Septura Brass Septet aims to recast the brass ensemble as a serious artistic medium by creating a canon of transcriptions, arrangements and new commissions for this brand new classical configuration. Currently Ensemble-in-Residence at the Royal Academy of Music, the group is recording a series of discs, each focused on a particular period, genre and set of composers, creating a “counterfactual history” of brass chamber music. Weaving this ever-increasing repertoire into captivating live events, Septura is gaining a reputation for engaging audiences with innovative and imaginative programming. Its members are the leading players of the new generation of British brass musicians, holding principal positions in the London Symphony, Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, Basel Symphony and Aurora orchestras.

Adults, $20; seniors, $15; non-SU students, $5
