Polyphonic Brass were members of the Live Music Now! scheme for the several years. During this time we gained extensive knowledge and experience in this area working for organisations such as the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities, Cheshire and Flintshire county councils and the Plymouth Education Action Zone. Projects have been sponsored by Lloyds, Royal and Sun Alliance, Barclays, Principality, Buxton Festival, Children in Need and the Sunbeams Trust. Click here to see what some of the people we worked for think of us. Below is a break down of the services we can offer.
Our most popular and most affordable service is the Single Session. This includes a one hour informal presentation at your establishment during which we perform a selection of music, demonstrate how our instruments work and try to involve the audience in a few of the pieces we perform. A shorter half hour session is also available. However, we would normally require two of these to be booked for a single visit. This is a popular option though as it allows more people to experience the presentation at no extra cost to you.
Carrying on from this, we offer a Music Day. This generally includes two sessions at your school, the format of which is decided by you. For example, we could perform two sessions like the one described above, or we could do one of these sessions in the morning combined with a more formal recital in the afternoon.
Polyphonic Brass can also offer your establishment a more long term project. This has been a succesful and popular request for us in the past. Again, the format for this can be determined by you. Previously we have sent out different combinations of players on a weekly basis over a few weeks, performing to different classes each week and culminating with a concert for everyone to enjoy. We have found this a more affordable and fun way to involve more people on a more personal basis. Another suggestion could be a project where two, or three of us come in on a weekly basis working on a composition or other similar project over a period of weeks, culminating in a public performance at the end.
