Brass for Africa

Chill Out Concert
Brass for Africa, an ensemble of 12 vibrant brass and percussion musicians from Uganda, stops in the heart of the Alps for a colourful and dramatic programme. This performance with traditional costume and dance, features African-inspired brass band classics, popular music from Uganda, and traditional East African music arranged by the performers.

Founded over 10 years ago by airline pilot Jim Trott with the initial donation of 30 rather old and well used brass instruments from his son’s junior brass band, Brass for Africa now supports over 1000 children and young people in Uganda, Liberia and Rwanda every week through brass music education and life-skills training. The charity also provides employment opportunities and training for more than 40 African national staff.
