Vulcan Brass win PJBE Prize
Congratulations to Ffion Morris, Chloe Eagleson, Jack Lythaby and Josh Dickens of Vulcan Brass for winning the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble Prize held recently at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. The esteemed adjudicators were the well respected trombonist Christopher Mowat and Ursula Jones who also generously sponsors the competition in her late husband’s name.
The Philip Jones Brass Ensemble Prize commemorates the pioneering work of Philip Jones and aims to perpetuate the traditions of brass chamber music that his internationally acclaimed ensemble established. 2021 would have been Philip Jones’ 93rd year. It will be 70 years since Philip started a brass ensemble and 35 year since the PJBE gave its last public performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London on 8th June 1986.
