Musical sensation Wonderbrass are headlining the 25th anniversary concert of groundbreaking charity Community Music Wales this week.

The inspiring 25-piece band promises to dazzle the audience at Cardiff’s Tramshed on November 9 with their phenomenal onstage presence and diversity of sound.

The much-anticipated concert will not only be a quarter-century landmark event for Community Music Wales but for Wonderbrass themselves who were formed out of the organisation.

Featuring a diverse selection of performers, the “25 And Live” concert will celebrate how the charity’s creative and inspiring workshops has improved more than 50,000 lives.

Hosted by celebrity singer Catrin Southhall, the concert also promises a whole of host of top names from the local music scene.

This will include musical performance project Ghostbuskers who appear across the country at community events and concerts throughout the year - always encouraging participation from audience members.

Community ensemble Cardiff Gamelan who use a wonderfully versatile set of instruments to perform their wide variety of music are also on the line up.

Also taking to the stage will be the biophony project band Blarpipa, Canton Drumming Circle and Cardiff Canton Singers.

Director Hannah Jenkins said: “Community Music Wales is a leading force in the empowerment of disadvantaged groups and individuals across Wales and has delivered high quality arts activities which have inspired thousands of groups.
“We are delighted that so many of those groups that were formed out of our workshops are now combining for our anniversary concert.

“With so much talent on stage, “25 And Live” promises to be a night to remember!”

Community Music Wales was formed by a small group of Cardiff-based musicians intent on making a difference to the lives of others.

Since then the charity has grown to become a national organisation of 50 tutors which manages a huge programme of activities in many socially and economically deprived communities across the whole of Wales.

With offices in the Welsh capital and Caernarfon, the charity offers music activity, training, mentoring, workshops and events by working in partnership with housing associations, youth groups, asylum seekers and youth organisations including Barnados.

Community Music Wales’s 25th Anniversary Concert “25 And Live” takes place at The Tramshed, Clare Road, Cardiff on Thursday November 9th at 7.30pm

Ticket prices are £12.50 and £8.50 under 16 years. They are available from The Tramshed at http://tramshedcardiff.com/event/25-and-live/
