    The Amsterdam Staff Band (Bandmaster Olaf Ritman) presents its annual “Premier Brass” concert. This type of concert is intended to “build bridges” between the Salvation Army and the secular brass band world. The guest band for this evening will be the 2008 Dutch Champion, Brassband Rijnmond.

    As Brassband Rijnmond was the first band to be invited for the annual concert by the Amsterdam Staff Band, ten years ago, this year’s concert is a kind of reunion, hence the subtitle of the evening, “Reunion!” Besides Bandmaster Ritman of the Amsterdam Staff Band and the conductor of Brassband Rijnmond, Anno Appolo, the bands will be conducted by Dr. Howard J. Evans, former bandmaster of the Amsterdam Staff Band and current bandmaster of Boscombe Salvation Army Band.

    A live recording will be made of this concert, which will be available in due course.
