    The City of Cambridge Brass


    With special guests​

    Saturday 17th November 2007 - 19.30​

    Little St. Mary's Church - Cambridge

    The City of Cambridge Brass Band announces its forthcoming concert in Little St Mary’s Church, Cambridge, by kind permission of the Vicar and Churchwardens, on Saturday 17th November 2007. Tickets can be obtained from Brian Jordan Music and Books, 10 Green Street, Cambridge CB2 3JU Telephone: 01223 322368. £8 if purchased in advance and £10 on the door (or concessions £5 in advance or £6 on door - for children, students and senior citizens).

    The Band is delighted to promote its first concert in the centre of the city, whose name it is proud to bear, under the baton of Peter Bassano, featuring some music from its recent, very successful churches tour: Berlioz, Holst, Ireland and Gregson contrasted with music by four composers; Batchelor, Holloway, MacMillan and Souster whose names are not normally associated with brass bands.

    The band is also delighted to announce that it has secured the services of some well-renowned soloists for the occasion, namely, Gareth Stuart and Julio d'Escrivan (electronics), Mike Lovatt (Jazz Trumpet), Gordon Campbell (Jazz Trombone).

    Two composers represented Robin Holloway and Tim Souster have strong associations with Cambridge and the Band is delighted to be able to perform its Patron's (James MacMillan) Festival Fanfares.

    The Program will be:

    Beatrice & Benedict - Hector Berlioz arr. Keith Wilkinson

    Moorside Suite - Gustav Holst

    Thanks Peter!

    Just thought I'd add, if you're on facebook, I've made an event. You don't need inviting but it would be great if you would let us know you're coming! Click Here for the facebook page

    Is there a tMP award for most original concert? Hope to be there Bryan.:)

    What about an award for to most top As in a sop part? I counted 48 just on the last page of the Souster piece and they're mostly plucked out of no-where! Trouble is, if I split one, it echoes for the rest of the bar through the electronics!

    Hope to see you there!...Shame about the clash with the Cambridge uni/Somersham concert. :rolleyes:

    Did I see somewhere that John Harle is also taking part? If he is, say hello from me - we were in the Guards together. I'd also be intersted to know what he's playing - just in case it's something I could get my fingers round ;)

    He was going to be taking part but unfortunately had to pull out. He was going to play Golden Demon for brass band and saxophone

    You're lucky we're honest people here at CUBB. We turned away quite a few people who had tickets for your concert... :)

    Excellent concert last night Bryan, really nice to hear a band not playing any "Song from the shows" or the lastest blockbuster movie theme.
    Every piece was a quality piece of music, well done:clap: .

    Also for those who say there isn't an audience for bands playing proper music, there was last night. I didn't count but the church was about 2/3rds full. Hope the band and Peter are pleased with how it went.
