Doing Music Differently

Drum and Brass is an organisation that advocates for music-making in communities that are otherwise under-served and under-represented in Cumbria and Leicester.

Tell us the change your community needs, we’ll work with you to make it happen.

Having diversity of ethnicity, age and social background can only make your ensemble smarter, stronger, more self-sustaining and relevant.
