HALLÉ4BRASS is an award-winning project run at Thorn Cross Young Offenders Institution since March 2004. Under the inspirational leadership of the Hallé’s Principal Tuba, Ewan Easton MBE, prisoners at Thorn Cross are taught to play brass instruments. The clever design of the project links the acquisition of skills required to play a musical instrument to life-skills. For many prisoners this project has been a turning point in their journey towards rehabilitation.
