    On Friday 10th July, Woodfalls Band and Boscombe Band of the Salvation Army will welcome top-class soloists Richard Marshall and David Thornton to a Gala Concert, which will be held at 8.00pm at Boscombe Salvation Army Hall, Palmerston Road, Bournemouth.

    As a performer Richard Marshall has travelled to America, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand and several European countries, and performed solos in the world’s finest concert venues such as Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall. He became principal cornet of Black Dyke Band at the beginning of 2006; a position that is regarded as the "highest prized seat in banding".

    David Thornton was appointed as principal euphonium of the Black Dyke Band during July 2000. 4barsrest.com, the Internet magazine commented "...it was the position he was destined for…he has made it his own with a series of concert and contest performances that have been invariably breathtaking."

    This is set to be the brass event of the summer! Woodfalls and Boscombe Bands, their conductors Dr. Nicholas Childs and Dr. Howard J Evans and the soloists will entertain the audience with a mixture of brass band classics, showpiece solos and contemporary works by composer of the moment Paul Lovatt-Cooper.

    Tickets for the event are already selling fast. In fact it is proving so popular that there will be people travelling from as far afield as Switzerland, New Zealand and Vietnam to be at the concert. Reserved tickets in the balcony are priced at £8 and can be purchased from Derek Kittle on 01202 420410. Unreserved tickets on the ground floor are £5 and are available from Sarah Lewis on 0118 9821362 or online at www.wegottickets.com/event/51094.

    This is a particularly important event for Woodfalls Band. Unfortunately due to the difficult economic climate their long-term sponsor South West Trains has withdrawn its support; this concert will hopefully mean that they can secure the financial future of the band. It will also be an opportunity to re-launch themselves without the South West Trains name, including a brand new, specially designed logo.

    David Thornton and Richard Marshall will perform courtesy of York Instruments, and will be part of a trio of York artists performing at the concert, along with John Starkes, solo euphonium of the Boscombe SA Band and 2nd euphonium of Woodfalls Band.

    Incidentally, I sent an email to your band about a joint concert with Woodies sometime. Did anyone get it as I never got a reply.
