Set as the Championship Section Test Piece for the 2020 National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain.

Bruce Broughton’s exciting new brass band work has been selected by Kapitol Promotions for the Championship Section Final at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall. Originally premiered by Black Dyke Band at the BrassPass Band of the Year Contest 2019, Heroes was written by Double Academy Award nominee and 10 times Emmy Award winner, Bruce Broughton. 
On July 20 2019 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and the incredible achievements of astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. Heroes pays tribute in music to this historical event, and is cast in three continuous sections. 
“Ignition”, which launches the work, propels us into orbit with Broughton’s characteristically dynamic rhythmic writing before transitioning into the beautiful second section, “Tranquillity”. Here, the ethereal beauty of The Sea of Tranquillity provides the soloists an opportunity to revel in the lush sound world. 
The final Section, “Return” is a technical tour de force, developing material from the earlier sections before a reprise of the “tranquillity” theme brings to the work to a resounding conclusion.
