Saturday evening will see B&Rs MD pick up his cornet once again as he appears as guest soloist in a concert at Garforth Community College (Leeds), featuring his three local bands - Kippax, Garforth Brass and Garforth Jubilee. The concert is a launch event for this year's Garforth Arts Festival in June/July, which will see Alan return with Brighouse & Rastrick as part of a concert season featuring such diverse acts as Courtney Pine and the Brodsky Quartet. Saturday's concert will feature a short programme by each band, including a solo by Alan with each of them. As well as performing a further four pieces with piano accompaniment, Alan will then conduct a massed bands finale. For more details of this celebration of brass music, featuring an increasingly rare chance to hear "The Man with the Golden Cornet", visit the festival website, which includes online ticketing.
