A talented group of musicians are set to perform at Bury Parish Church on Friday.

Grace Harman, Erin Mclellan, Charlotte Nuta and Isabel Thompson form Laiton Trumpet Quartet and study at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM).

They will be showcasing their skills at the town centre church in a lunchtime concert at 12.30pm.

The trumpet quartet, who are in their third year of studying, was set up two years ago and have enjoyed several workshops, performances and coaching from chamber music specialists since then.

Considering the rarity of trumpet quartets, Laiton has worked hard over the last few years to build up a plethora of repertoire.

With help from the librarians to find "hidden gems" of works and recently collaborating with composers on new works and arranging themselves, the quarter play a variety of styles from traditional classical music, to jazz and contemporary.

Laiton also perform on many different instruments, such as the flugelhorn, Eb trumpet, cornets, and piccolo trumpet.

Notably, in June 2022, the group made it to the finals of the RNCM Philip Jones Brass Prize, competing against all other brass groups across the college to a panel of brass experts, including Philip’s late wife Ursula Jones.

Laiton has also performed in a workshop to international trumpet soloist, Rex Richardson, playing "Fanfare for an Angel" by James Stephenson. This is a piece Rex has frequently performed and a composer to whom he is very close with, giving Laiton a real look into the composer's stylistic choices and trumpet technique to mastering the work.

Entry will be £5 on the door and refreshments will be on sale from 11.30am.
