Established in 1985, Regent Brass is an ambitious and forward- looking brass band based in central London. Led by their Musical Director Paul Archibald, the band pursues an ambitious and eclectic programme of musical activity, regularly performing contemporary music including several world premières and commissions, as well as the very best music from across the brass band repertoire.
Regent Brass have recently developed an exciting new partnership with DLD College Westminster, bringing brass band music to a wider audience. This relationship has a strong emphasis on education and collaboration and offers encouragement to a new generation of brass musicians.
Regent Community Brass was founded in 2012 to open up performance and educational opportunities to adult musicians in the London Borough of Brent.
The band performs regularly in competitions, and has enjoyed great success since its formation, rising from the Fourth Section to the Championship Section in only six years, winning the London and Southern Counties Area Contest on five separate occasions, and qualifying for the National Finals nine times.
In addition to the band’s competitive commitments, Regent also regularly organises international tours. In July 2021 the band will visit Poland and Ukraine culminating in a performance in the Philharmonic Hall, Lviv.
Regent Brass are proud to be a partner band with Geneva Instruments, one of the world’s leading suppliers of high quality brass instruments.
