This is the Cory Band

Cory Band is the World’s best brass band, proud to be leading this traditional form of amateur music-making into a new era.

“The band exudes a palpable sense of dynamism and professionalism”

You can whet your appetite further by watching more on our own YouTube Channel.

Cory regularly wins both domestic and international brass band competitions and performs a widely varied repertoire of music at home and abroad to a professional standard. The band seeks to grow its artform with powerful and inspiring experiences for its artists and its audiences.

Proud of its roots, this ensemble also dares to step out of the traditional brass band genre to deliver a tantalising mixture of both blockbusting and beautiful music that amazes and captivates its audiences wherever it performs.

Cory Band, whose home is in Treorchy in the Welsh Valleys, comprises both male and female performers of mixed ages and backgrounds, hailing from near and far, but with one thing in common – the drive to do whatever it takes to keep Cory at the top of its game.

Performances are wonderfully entertaining and offer music that everyone can enjoy. Don’t miss a fantastic opportunity to discover:

The brass band sound that is breaking new ground.

“Saw you for first time last Saturday - such clarity of sound, definition, togetherness, precision, separation and overall completeness. A fantastic concert and I can assure you I shall certainly come to see you again!”
