    Black Dyke Band announce Gala Concert,
    Leeds Town Hall, Friday, 26th May, 2006 at 8.00 pm

    As always with our leading Brass Bands, this concert offers an excellent evening's entertainment, full of variety.

    Classical composers are always well represented in Black Dyke programmes, and this evening is no exception. They offer Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No 1, Shostakovitch's Festive Overture, and end with a blockbuster performance of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.
    In addition to being the current British Open and European Champions, Black Dyke are also the only brass band to be nominated for both Grammy and Oscar awards. Their contribution to the film "Babe" brought them one of these nominations, and it is fitting that they will end the first half of the programme with the Finale from Saint Saens Organ Symphony, joined in full-voiced competition by Leeds City Organist, Dr Simon Lindley.

    Black Dyke's own soloists are legendary, and the concert will include contributions from Principal Cornet Richard Marshall in Virtuosity, Solo Euphonium David Thornton in the Devil’s Duel, Flugel horn virtuoso John Doyle in The Children of Sanchez and Principal Trombonist Brett Baker in Arthur Pryor’s gem, Annie Laurie.

    The second half of the concert features Black Dyke at the Opera, and will includeVerdi’s Grand March from Aida, Wagner’s Prelude to Act 3 of Lohengrin, and Leoncavello’s “On With The Motley” , played by the legendary soprano cornet player Peter Roberts.

    On behalf of the World's most famous Brass Band, we warmly invite you to join us.
