    Give us your ideas for a 25 minute entertainment programme consisting entirely of original music for brass band written in the last 40 years.

    To celebrate The Harrogate Band's 40th Anniversary we've donated a prize to the fabulous entertainment contest at Hardraw Scar, as featured on TV's Band for Britain.

    The prize is for the best performance of an original piece of music for brass band written in the last 40 years.

    BUT... Why not take this a step further and give us your ideas for a 25 minute entertainment programme consisting entirely of original music for brass band written in the last 40 years. What pieces would you choose? How would you get round the challenge of playing a hymn tune/slow melody?

    Here's my ill-informed choice:-

    Dacre Banks - Phillip Wilby
    Bright Spark - David Lancaster
    Song and Dance - Phillip Sparke or Zimba Zamba - Goff Richards
    Kongolela - JM Foroe
    Shine as the Light - Peter Graham

    - what's yours?
