To book tickets, click here Note: as soon as you’ve paid for your ticket you'll be sent a link - possibly followed by an email repeating the link - which will allow you to watch the concert recording immediately.
Rather than do this we suggest you pause there and wait until after the live Zoom discussion with the players on 11th March at 6:15pm. The link to this introduction will be sent to you by e-mail the day before.
This is not as we would have wished and has come about because of some difficulty in setting up the concert recording. We will strive to do better next time.

As you know, Wye Valley Music has close links with the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama (RWCMD). Our last live concert before the Covid-19 lockdown was the annual showcase for students and so, during this difficult time, we are particularly pleased to be able enjoy and support another group of talented musicians from the college in this way.
Flora Brass is a Brass Quintet based in Cardiff, comprised of 3rd year students at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. The group formed in 2019, and decided immediately to seek performance opportunities outside of the RWCMD.
