As Frank says about this edition of Frankly Speaking;

"Brass in Concert has been a fixture of the brass band calendar since 1977, and I have presented it both live and on video since 1994. So to have the pandemic get in the way of this year's performance isn't good. But Brass in Concert and World of Brass came together to create a virtual festival, which they asked me to present for them online and it was streamed over the weekend of November 14/15th 2020.

Putting together this week's music podcast of performances from Brass in Concert over the years, made me think about the value of contesting, and how it's changed over the years. So I made that the core of this edition of Frankly Speaking. It's the music isn't it!

Do let us know your views of contest music via the contact page on the website, I’d love to hear from you."
