With their debut performance in Christchurch, Malvern, this exciting new ensemble brings a fresh flavour of high-quality music. Like the Black Pear, the ensemble is synonymous and unique to the county. BPSW aims to build upon Worcestershire’s legendary musical heritage with performances of original music for Wind Orchestras at the highest standard. In addition to this, BPSW endeavour to create their own legacy by developing educational links throughout the county.

BPSW provides the opportunity for instrumentalists of wind, brass and percussion to perform original wind orchestra repertoire as part of a, semi-professional ensemble. They are certainly a group to enjoy live in order to experience the full power of this exciting, new wind ensemble and the challenging music they perform with talent, quality and a formidable dynamic range.

The concert on 2nd February includes a range of works celebrating English composers including Malcolm Arnold, Arthur Sullivan and Gustav Holst. The programme also showcases modern day, English composers who specifically create works for the genre of Symphonic Wind ensembles including a piece by Martin Ellerby, ‘Elgar Variations’, written as a tribute to the famous Worcestershire composer, Edward Elgar.
