Lion City Brass Band was established in 2015 to promote brass music in Singapore. Led by founding Music Director Ignatius Wang, the band has developed a strong reputation for its captivating and awe-inspiring performances across a diverse range of musical genres.

As the premier brass ensemble in Singapore, the Lion City Brass Band has performed at several music festivals and concert venues. It works regularly with Singaporean composers to promote and create new works for the brass band. With its commitment to inspire a new standard of brass musicianship in Singapore, the band is also recognised for its work with young students and school bands, with its annual brass workshops and joint performances.

Made up of some of Singapore’s finest brass musicians and educators, the Lion City Brass Band has collaborated with several groups, including the Eastern Australia Brass during their tour to Singapore in 2018. The band is also known for its annual Christmas concerts at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd, helping to raise much needed funds for the poor and needy. Its recordings have also been frequently featured on the international radio show, Sunday Bandstand, and broadcasted through radio stations across Australia, Cyprus, France, New Zealand, UK and the USA.
