Krasnodar & Black Sea Peninsula, Russia and Crimea
August 13th to 24th 2018
Following our performance at the prestigious Victory Day celebrations in Moscow, Russia in May 2017, Symphonic Brass Wales has now been invited to perform in Russia once again from August 13th to 24th.
Originally due to travel in March, the tour was postponed due to heavy snow hampering travel from the U.K. Fellow performing groups from Italy & New Zealand visited the region in March however and had a tremendous time. Videos from their visit can be found at the bottom of the page below.
