Introducing The Trumpet Marine (BREMF)
Watch here: www.youtube.com/user/brightonemf
Meet the trumpet marine, a towering, single-stringed instrument with a host of resonating or sympathetic strings. It was a trumpet-substitute for nuns and an unusual vehicle for virtuosic musical display in the late 17th century, falling out of circulation in the late 18th century and rarely seen or heard since then, despite its magnificent sound and appearance.

This year you can enjoy BREMF in the comfort of your own home.
Although we are not putting events behind a paywall, as we want to encourage curiosity from those who haven’t yet discovered what a fantastic range of music we cover, we are trialling V-tickets online. These voluntary tickets offer an easy way to donate in advance towards the considerable costs of making each of the 10 programmes on offer. We even offer a ‘season ticket’ for them all. Each programme is crafted for the screen and merges musical performance with film, images, animation and documentary presentation. Programmes will be online for a week, providing flexibility of viewing across the globe, while maintaining a festival feel with scheduled premieres on YouTube and Facebook.
Free- Donations welcome!
