    This thread in the correct place Hanna, so no worries there, but I'm sure we would all like to hear more details about the concert from those who attended.

    The concert was simply fantastic.

    It opened with Queensbury - what else?

    We also heard Peter Graham's Journey to the Centre of the Earth. An excellent piece and very well played.

    James Morrison was simply awe-inspiring.

    I'm not really sure what purpose the dancers were meant to serve in the new Wilby piece - terrific music as you would expect from Wilby, but 3 birds and a bloke wiggling there bums not in time to the music just seemed a bit, wel, pointless is probably the kindest word i can use.

    The finale was Gregson's Age of Kings, which is simply wonderful music and was a wonderful finale.

    A terrific start to the 150 celebrations. I did feel a bit sorry for the latecomers - still John Maines gave us a laugh about it.

    Our DVD recording of the concert will be launched at the National Brass Band Championships at The Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 15th October.

    I agree with the bit about the dancers...did anyone see when one of the women ended up with her head under one of the players chairs...not quite sure whose it was because they kept swapping places! Mind you, I should be grateful to them, the only reason I heard about the concert is because they were in the local paper and it said they were performing with black dyke!
    What was everyone's favourite piece? I loved all the James Morrison pieces, but I thought the best black dyke piece was cossack fire dance! Although I dont think some people got the hang of the clapping, and got it confused with the clapping for the soloist! Fantastically catchy though!
  7. In one word the concert was amazing! It made me realise that yes, i do have a long way to go but it inspired me to try my hardest. James Morrisson was absolutely astounding. I cant wait for the DVD to come out! x

    On the downside:-
    James Morrison responsible for me getting home, picking my instrument up and throwing it in the canal :cry:

    Me too! I was consoling myself throughout the concert thinking maybe he was rubbish at the euphonium. But no, he picked one of those up and started playing jazz on it! I couldn't believe it. So now I have to resort to the only fact that is keeping me sane, at least we won the rugby world cup!!!
