Collective 43 was created by Phil Wilkins in 2013, after a dream involving over 60 musicians including 10 drummers, 20 guitarists, a huge brass section and a choir! He wanted to recreate this vision and use it for personal trumpet development and to push its individual members out of their comfort zones.
Now Collective 43 has 8 core members and additions bringing together trumpet, tubas, saxes, flute, trombones, clarinet, drums, percussion, guitars, vocalists, keys, melodica and typewriter!
