William Russell trumpet

Join William Russell (Director of Spiritato!) for this public brass masterclass where he will work with young brass players and ensembles on the WMC stage. William brings his passion for early music and authentic performance practice as well as his commitment to nurturing and supporting the next generation of young musicians, and will provide performance coaching, technical tips and interpretative guidance.

Take Part

We are looking for three brass players of any age or ability to take part in this masterclass. 

Participants must bring a piece of their choice (minimum length: 3 mins) to work through with William. The masterclass will focus on baroque and classical repertoire - where William can provide a wealth of stylistic knowledge, and even bring in early versions of participant' instruments to try. 

This is a free opportunity for participants, who will also receive reduced price tickets for Spiritato! The Taste of the Nation on Saturday 15th February, 7.30pm
