Music Societies raise over £1,000 for charity

The Music Centre's annual Free Concert 2014 was held in the Butterworth Hall, Warwick Arts Centre. With a huge audience, music societies performed after only a few rehearsals to demonstrate what they are all about. This year, the Warwick Brass Society raised money for two charities: UniBrass and Brass For Africa. In total they raised a huge £1036.08.

About UniBrass

UniBrass, the world's only inter-university brass band contest, is being hosted at the University of Warwick on 14 February 2015. A charity who aims to raise the profile of brass banding at university, they are becoming an integral part of brass players life whilst at university without which many more players would stop. Keep an eye on the Warwick Arts Centre listings for tickets. To find out more about UniBrass, or read about their upcoming tour of universities, UniTour, please visit their website: unibrass.co.uk
