Cory Band Competes in both National and International Brass Band Competitions – and does very well!
Cory is proud to have won many brass band competitions over the years and continues to compete at the very highest level, winning an unprecedented Grand Slam of the four ‘majors’ in 2016 to complete a full ten years as the number one ranked brass band in the world. This feat was repeated in 2019, but this time with the inclusion of the inaugural BrassPass.tv Band of the Year title.
