Today, J5o Brass present a programme of Viennese classics for brasss. The group formed in 2008 and have since gone on to perform at the 'BBC Good Food Show' and 'Gardeners' World Live' (both at Birmingham NEC); charity functions at London Olympia Hilton Hotel and solo concerts across the capital at locations such as Canary Wharf and LSO St Luke's. Their interest in the indigenous folk music of Europe led to a programme of arrangements that were premiered at the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble competition, where they finished runners-up. A keen desire to promote the growing importance of music in the film and video game industry has seen numerous arrangements comissioned specifically for the group to showcase a genre growing in popularity. They frequently perform varied programmes of baroque and early music; arrangements of popular classics; jazz and world music and original compositions for brass quintet.
