HallÚ Brass with the RNCM Zerbina Duo on Sunday 24th June 2018
Formed in 1965, Hallé Brass are one of the foremost brass ensembles in the UK formed primarily from principal members of the internationally renowned Hallé Orchestra.
The group is also one of the oldest brass quintets in the world that played a leading role in the development of this format of chamber music.
In the early years, Hallé Brass gave premieres by eminent composers such as John McCabe, Joseph Horovitz and Edward Gregson.
They will be joined by harpist Becki McIlroy and violinist Rebecca Howell, who are known as the Zerbina Duo.
Becki is a music graduate from The University of Manchester, currently studying for her master's degree at the Royal Northern College of Music.
Recently she performed with the Piccadilly Symphony Orchestra alongside comedians Jason Manford and John Bishop at The Bridgewater Hall.
Rebecca is currently a postgraduate student at the Royal Northern College of Music.
In March 2016, Rebecca, who also leads the Florestan String Quartet, was awarded first prize in Durham's inaugural Soloists Competition and went on to perform Saint-Saëns' Violin Concerto No 3 with the University Palatine Orchestra on their summer tour to Paris.
