Bactiguard Wire Brass is hosting a regional contest preview evening on Friday 29th February. The concert will feature this year’s test pieces performed by bands competing in the North West area championships in Blackpool on the 9th March. The line up is as follows: Parr Band performing Four Cities Symphony by Rodney Newton, Flixton Band performing The Dark Side of the Moon by Paul Lovatt-Cooper, Old Hall Brass playing Three Part Invention by Kenneth Downie, and Bactiguard Wire Brass will be playing Festival Music by Eric Ball. We are, however, short of a first section band so if anyone is interested in completing the line up please contact us. The concert is an opportunity for the bands to perform their test pieces in front of an audience, and for other interested parties to hear all the pieces in one evening. The concert is free of charge and will take place at Barrow Hall Theatre, Great Sankey High School, Barrow Hall Lane, Warrington WA5 3AA on Friday 29th February, starting 7.30pm. Please contact Paul Andrews on 01925 826927 for further details.
