Subscription Concert - 28/02/09

In February 2009, the band again welcomed Geoff Whitham, a true brass band legend, to join us for our annual subscription weekend and concert. This is the 3rd year Geoff has joined the band in a weekend of rehearsals, followed by a concert consisting of specially chosen music and some old favourites.

The special piece of music this year was Eric Ball’s Petite Suite De Ballet, consisting of 4 contrasting movements. Also in the programme were 2 solos, a euphonium solo, The Wedding, played by Pat Collins, and a classic cornet solo, Napoli, played by Jason Evans. Other pieces that completed the programme included

Great Little Army

Bui Doi (The Children’s Song) from Miss Saigon

The Cuckoo

Under the Double Eagle

The Can Can from Orpheus in the Underworld

Hymns of Praise

Not only did the weekend consist of rehearsing and the concert, but on the Friday a social was held for players and their partners, Geoff and his partner, and our compare for the concert, Ian Cottier and his wife.

The band are now looking forward to a full summer season of concerts and next year’s subscription concert.
