Oslofjord Brass are delighted to invite you to a party 27.-28.april 2018.
The festival is held over two days with a church programme on Friday and a concert programme on a pub scene on Saturday. We present a new and exciting contest format and of course the best brass night ever!
Please send us an email if you wish to learn more about our festival,
as the site is still not optimized for an English speaking audience.
The festival is being kicked off with spectacular church concerts in Kulturkirken Jakob.
Jakob* Church of Culture is run by Kirkelig Kulturverksted (direct translation: «Church Cultural Workshop» - perhaps best known as a record label, but also a center for visual and performing arts in general). It was reopened as a cultural space in February 2000 to standing ovations from artists, actors and audience after more than fifteen years of lobbying, politics, fundraising and hard work.
We aim to make beautiful musical moments, that makes both the musicians and audience happy! We want an unformal atmosphere, and that is why we have chosen one of Oslo and Norways best consert venues for the concerts on saturday.
There will be no gala concert. The elite section will be our entertainment for the evening. The bar will be open throughout and there are no closed doors. People can come and go as they please, they can buy refreshments in the bar and have a snack to eat.
Results are always interesting. We want to give you more to discuss! At Oslo Brass Festival we will have four different adjudicators and the audience themselves will even get a chance to affect the final results. No scores will be handed out. The adjudicators will base their scores on how they experience the concerts and the musical quality.
As the results have been announced and we all have something to celebrate, or sorrows to drown, we will make the place into a party. The bar is open, and you can eat and drink and discuss the results all night. And of course there will be dancing.
The party will go on until 3 am.
