    Sterling euphonium artist, Mark Glover, flies in from Singapore in December to perform as guest soloist with The Audley Brass Band in Staffordshire. The concert will feature the UK premiere of a new brass band arrangement of 'Bells across the Meadow' by Albert Ketelbey.

    This arrangement has been written specifically for Mark by the talented Arranger in Residence of The Staffordshire Band, Wesley Kendrick. Mark will also perform Wesley Kendrick's arrangement of Silent Night, which is titled 'Christmas Eve', and other solos.

    Mark has performed in Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Malaysia, Australia and most recently Brazil this year but he admits that "There is nothing like playing solos in a local church, with a brass band, in my home country, at Christmas time".

    Whilst over Mark will be rehearsing with the band, coaching and on the night giving an adjudication of their performance of the 4th Section Test Piece for 2016 “The Journal of Phileas Fogg”. Tom Hancock MD at Audley Brass said “This is a great opportunity for Audley Brass to have the chance to work with and accompany a world class soloist like Mark, let alone be the focus for his UK Premiere of a new piece of music”.

    The concert is being held at Audley Methodist Church, New Road, Bignall End, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire ST7 8QF on Saturday 19th December at 7.30pm. Tickets are £6, available from Rachel Tunnicliffe 07775-582212 or on the door on the night.
