New Music

Arcomis exists to support new music and composers, and both will play an important part in the Brass Event.

Arcomis has commissioned 10 composers with funds provided by the Arts Council of Wales and the Welsh Government to each write a short fanfare for the Arcomis International Brass Event 2013. These will permeate the festival in the form of announcing the beginning of our major concerts and where applicable their second halves.

Featured Composers
In addition to composers we have commissioned, music featured throughout the Brass Event will celebrate five anniversary composers. Follow the link to find out who!

Free Performance
A small number of works of excellent quality, selected from an international call for works, will be performed by local professional musicians, interspersed with short talks from Arcomis' Director and Head of Publishing on the placement of new music, and how Arcomis promotes and supports composers.


All tickets and event passes (full or day) are available through St. Davids Hall.
