Lord Nelson Brass was formed in 2009 with the aim of bringing together brass players from different London music colleges to form a quintet, octet or ten-piece ensemble for competitions and recitals. Within the first six months of being formed, the quintet competed in the Royal Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition and the St. Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition, whilst the octet competed in the Royal Academy of Music Brass Ensemble Prize. Since then, Lord Nelson Brass has developed a lot as a group, having performed recitals in various venues in London and the Home Counties and playing alongside various choirs and choral societies in larger venues. In December 2010, the quintet performed alongside the choirs of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in a series of Christmas concerts.
Members of the quintet have performed with various orchestras including: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The Halle, BBC Philharmonic, The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, English National Opera, Classical Opera Company, Heritage Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra, European Union Youth Orchestra and Southbank Sinfonia. The group continues to develop as individual players and as an ensemble, gradually becoming regular performers at some venues in London, including St. Martin-in-the-Fields and the Painted Hall in Greenwich. As well as performing in recitals and competitions, the quintet regularly provides background music for a large assortment of private and public events and performs alongside many choirs and choral societies in and around London.
