Spirit of UniBrass Award

Spirit of UniBrass Award

The Spirit of UniBrass Award celebrates individuals, bands or groups who have demonstrated a contribution to the spirit or progression of brass banding. 

The first Spirit of UniBrass Award was won in 2022 by Curtis Maltby from the University of Birmingham. Curtis was nominated for "unrelenting diligence to furthering the university brass band movement and ensuring that [the University of Birmingham Brass Band] provides encouragement to others to join, or pick up a brass instrument for the first time". Curtis promoted a "more diverse and equal ‘banding community’" by "helping out at his local school brass band and speaking to musical directors to stimulate the culture he would like to see embodied by brass banding in Birmingham, his home city and beyond".
