Aura Brass is a new, dynamic brass quintet that was founded in 2017. Aura Brass is made up of students and alumni of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The quintet have found success by performing concerts and recitals across Scotland, most recently at the Brunton Theatre in Musselburgh, BBC ‘Classics Unwrapped’ and For Fettes College, with whom Aura Brass has an association. They also enjoy working with schools and young people to encourage the art of brass playing. Aura Brass are also very keen to enter competitions and over the last year have reached the final of the Governors Prize for Chamber Music and placed 1st in the David James Prize for Brass. All members of the quintet work professionally as freelance musicians and have worked with orchestras such as the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, The Orchestra of Scottish Ballet, The Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Deutsche Radio Philharmonie. Aura Brass is able to perform in a huge range of style and genre including baroque, Classical, and Jazz and Traditional music.
