All-Female, All-Norwegian Brass Ensemble tenThing to Tour U.S. This Spring

via  The ten-piece ensemble fronted by trumpet virtuoso Tine Thing Helseth is set to embark on its first U.S. tour this spring!


tenThing, a Norwegian ten-woman brass ensemble has performed brass ensemble music to the highest standard since its founding in 2007. Helseth and three of her trumpet friends founded the group after watching a string orchestra concert, because they wanted to match that caliber of  ensemble performance on brass instruments. The group plays entirely original arrangements and sometimes also uses choreography.

Hear them play and check if they’re coming to your town below the break!
