Magic of the Musicals

Milton Keynes Brass was formed in 1984 through the generous sponsorship of a building company called 'Broseley Homes', from which organisation the band took its original name. Broseley Homes was much involved in the development of Milton Keynes - the city in which the band is based. And where did the company get its name? From Broseley in Shropshire where the company had connections - so that's how Buckinghamshire Brass Band was named after a Shropshire location.
Milton Keynes Brass played music from The Magic Flute, Evita, Miss Saigon and Les Miserables. Also The Fool on the Hill by Lenon & McCartney, Comedians Galop by Kabalevsky and In Christ Alone by Townend & Getty.
