Their programmes feature their own prolific arrangers, Oliver Hickie and Cai Isfryn, the co-founders of the ensemble.
    Baker Street Brass has enjoyed a residency at Lancaster University since 2009 and performed three world premieres at the RNCM Festival of Brass in January 2010 in a recital featuring the euphonium virtuoso David Thornton, followed by the commissioning of "Fanfaronade" by Tom Harrold for performance at the MontepulciBaker Street Brassano "Cantiere" Festival in Tuscany later that year.
    Individually , the group's members are all freelance musicians working with some of Britain's finest ensembles and together are striving to reach out to new audiences through the brass quintet medium.
