An ensemble of extraordinary musicians

Led by John Wallace, The Wallace Collection is passionate about promoting the diverse world of brass music
through performance and partnership, education and innovation.

Welcome to The Wallace Collection Website

Led by John Wallace, renowned international trumpet soloist, leading arts educationalist, composer, conductor and former principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, The Wallace Collection brass ensemble has been reborn for the 21st Century.

Combining master musicians with a passion for promoting the diverse world of brass music, The Wallace Collection aims to inspire, entertain, develop, educate and transform this vital musical genre.  The love for the complete spectrum of brass music from its origins, through its vibrant traditions, to ensuring its continuing vitality in our contemporary world, is the foundation of the ensemble’s credo.

Through pursuing a well-focussed strategy, The Wallace Collection will continue to combine live performance with interactive musical collaborations; bespoke product development; seminal recording projects; the publication of new works and transcriptions of significant historical milestones; and the provision of accessible educational outreach through presentations, master-classes and demonstrations for all ages.
