Newbery Brass

Newbery Brass is the beginning step in the Canberra Brass Inc. community organisation. This ensemble provides an opportunity for people in the ACT community to develop brass playing skills, and enjoy making music with other people. The intention is that this band is the first step towards joining Victoria Street Brass, and potentially Canberra Brass.
