‘The Best of Brass’ was the theme for a concert at the Vera Fletcher Hall in Thames Ditton on the 23rd of February, the first engagement of the year.
The audience and band had an enjoyable evening with some very well known brass music as well as other popular pieces that fitted the ‘Best of’ theme.
Entry of the Gladiators started the show which also included Hey Jude, The Floral Dance and All through the night.
Soloists were :
- Mat Baker on Cornet playing Trumpeter’s Lullaby
- John Wilde on Baritone playing Rusalka’s Song to the Moon
- Stephanie Scholes on Soprano Cornet playing Intermezzo from Cavaleria Rusticana
Special thanks go to Billy Fletcher who was guest conductor for the evening.
