- Royal Over-Seas League Competition
Over-Seas House, London
Having formed a full 2 years ago, we decided it was time to spread our wings and compete in a professional competition for the first time. As a result, we entered the prestigious Royal Over-Seas League Wind Ensemble Competition, where we thoroughly enjoyed playing a varied programme of Latin, contemporary and light music. We were successful in finishing up as semi-finalists and look forward to competing again next year.
- A concert of coronation music with The Dyfed Choir
St Peter’s Church, Goodwick (Pembrokeshire)
We were delighted to build upon our connection with West Wales in this Spring concert. On our 3rd trip to Pembrokeshire, Riverside Brass Quintet accompanied The Dyfed Choir in an exciting Coronation Music-influenced programme, with some solo pieces added for good measure!

- Polo event: Jodhpur, India
Saturday 16th February marked our very first gig of this nature – providing matchday entertainment for Aviva Premiership rugby club, Saracens RFC. Following the success of the inaugral event, we were unveiled as their new in-house band fro 2012-13, providing up-tempo music for all remaining home matches of the season, as well as Heineken Cup matches at Twickenham. This led a group consisting of Riverside Brass members and guests to journey into the heart of India to perform music at a prestigious Jodhpur polo match!
