LATEST NEWS — EASINGWOLD TOWN BAND’S ANNUAL CONCERT, 2017

We’ll be putting on our Annual Concert at the Galtres Centre, Easingwold, on Saturday 18 March, 7.30 p.m.  ‘An Evening of Brass Classics’ is this year’s theme —  old & new favourites, composed or arranged for brass band. 

Some well known and much loved ‘brass classics’ were composed before modern brass instruments or brass bands were invented….or weren’t originally composed for brass instruments at all. Others – particularly marches – were written specifically for brass bands. Our concert has a flavour of both, including:

• ‘Death or Glory’ by R B Hall: a ‘British’ standard…by an American composer

Slow movement from Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto in E-flat (cornet solo)

Percy Grainger’s haunting ‘Irish Tune from County Derry’

• ‘Little Suite for Brass’ by Malcolm Arnold

• ‘Clog Dance’ and ‘Florentine March’, from the film ‘Brassed Off’

And we’ll also be featuring our Intermediate Band, with Handel’s ‘Scipio March’.
