Intrada Brass Ensemble is based in Preston, Lancashire. It is an eleven-piece formation with percussion and can play a wider variety of music in concert situations than is possible with more conventional and smaller ensembles.
“The Intrada Brass Ensemble…is a high class mix of established and freelance professionals along with active amateurs and teachers. Their stylistic boundaries have been gradually expanded to include jazz, pop, original works for ten piece brass ensemble and arrangements of staple classics. The choice of music is eclectic, but all the more entertaining for it…ebullient spirit and stylistic perception.” World of Sound Recordings
