    Public

    Brass players often supplied colonial theatres with instrumental music. A fashion for brass bands swept the country in the late nineteenth century, following the perfection of mass-produced instruments and cheap printed music. It especially took hold in the industrial and mining cities and towns. Hotly contested competitions paved the way for star players such as Percy Code to embark on distinguished international careers.
