Geneva Group partners Regent Brass
Geneva Group continue to expand its influence and are delighted to add Regent Brass to its growing list of partner bands. 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.
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.
Geneva's General manager Brett Baker commented, "I am thrilled to welcome Regent Brass to the family which means we have representation now in the London and Southern Counties Area. This forward thinking band aligns well with the Geneva aim to 'Be Different' and we look forward to working on some projects when the current lock-down restrictions are eased"
Neil Rossiter, Chairman of Regent Brass commented “this is a great opportunity for our band, we will be making the most of this new partnership, with our virtual band during the lockdown, and playing together as a full band in the not too distant future”
Paul Archibald commented “Regent Brass are proud to be a partner band with Geneva Instruments. As one of the world’s leading suppliers of high quality brass instruments, the values of the company reflect the ambitions of the band as we aspire to present the finest brass music to our audiences worldwide.”
