“We’re forming a band and we’re aiming high!” was the message sent out to local brass players and percussionists in 1997 when it was discovered that the experienced and successful British brass band director, Dr. Keith M. Wilkinson, was residing in north-east Ohio. That these ambitious sentiments have been amply achieved can be judged by the many impressive performances the band has carried out since that time.
The band presents its own Concert Series, five concerts each year, often with guest artists. Additionally BBWR receives several invitations to play at other locations, and any of these are repeat bookings. Prestigious concert venues have included The Amphi-theater, Chautauqua Institution, Hoover Auditorium, Lakeside Chautauqua and Severance Hall, Cleveland. Summer concerts include a July 4th performance, followed by fireworks.
Wherever BBWR performs its audiences are captivated by the wide variety of music presented as well as the band’s ability to impressively perform repertoire ranging from quiet and delicate to strong and powerful. Come to the concert and enjoy great music from a band called by many as the equal to the Canadian Brass and Burning River Brass ensembles.
