In the fall of 2003 Bradyworks undertook its first European tour with concerts in England, Scotland and Ireland, including a live concert broadcast for BBC Radio 3 recorded at the Maida Vale studio in London. Following a successful premiere in October 2003 in Montreal, the group presented Brady's chamber opera Three Cities in the Life of Dr. Norman Bethune in Toronto for two nights in January 2005. In the spring of 2005 the ensemble changed its instrumentation to its current line-up, including clarinet and viola, in order to perform the music for Brady's 2-act chamber opera The Salome Dancer at the Open Ears Festival in Kitchener. In the 2005 - 2006 season Bradyworks released the opera Bethune on CD (Ambiances magnétique) and in 2006 - 2007 they released 3 Solos - the Music of R. Murray Schafer on Centrediscs, the latter being a CD/DVD Audio release in 5.1 surround sound.
