United Brass is a relatively young band with a long tradition. It was moulded by merging two bands in 1982. While firmly rooted in the essentially British brass band tradition, United Brass has always been keen to engage in cross-over experiments with musicians of various backgrounds. Popular singers, an accordion virtuoso, jazz musicians … they were all attracted and seduced by present conductor Frank Vantroyen, solo tuba of the Flemish Opera Orchestra, to engage in successful projects with the band. The band became 3th section belgian brassband champion in 2016 & 2019. Recently the band became Kapitol Cory Online Brassband Championships (3th section) champions.
