Ferreira Brass offers a number of different sized ensembles:
Ferreira Brass showcases all that a brass instrument can do. A typical session would involve demonstrations of the instruments of the brass family, highlighting their musical versatility both individually and as part of an ensemble. The usual choice of music would display a variety of historical and modern musical styles, linking in with the development of the instruments themselves. What could be better for the students to engage with the polyphonic magnificence of Gabrieli performed around the room, just like in the balconies in St. Mark's Basilica, Venice? And to find out what a Hosepipe and Horn have in common, or how to solve a problem like a scale.
What better than a trumpet voluntary to walk you down the aisle, or a fanfare to mark a special occasion? Or are you looking for a virtuosic soloist for a concert? All of the members of Ferreira Brass can be booked as soloists for recitals and concerts in collaboration with your ensemble; from jazz bands, to brass bands and orchestras.
The Ferreira Brass quartet provides a light and elegant sound. This ensemble suits the music of the baroque and classical periods, typically associated with church ceremonies. The ensemble also works brilliantly in performing fanfares. This group usually consists of 2 trumpets and 2 trombones.
The Ferreira Brass Quintet is our signature group, and often performs full-length concert recitals. This ensemble consists of two trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba.
