    On Saturday 26th September, the East Yorkshire Motor Services Band will present a concert at the Middleton Hall, University of Hull, Cottingham Road, Hull, HU6 7RX. Starting at 7.30pm, the Band will be conducted by Mr Stan Lippeatt (the recently appointed Musical Director of the EYMS Band) and Dr Robert Childs (MD of the Cory Band, and co-founder of the EYMS Band), and will feature as Guest Soloist the International Euphonium Soloist David Childs.

    This concert was originally planned to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the foundation of the band in 1989 as the City of Hull Band. However, recent events meant that we now use this concert as a tribute to our late Band Secretary Maurice Metcalfe. All proceeds from the concert will be presented to the Dove House Hospice, a charity dear to Maurice's heart.

    Tickets can be ordered now from the Band - priced £8:00 - at EYMS Band, P.O. Box 938, Hull. HU7 4WX. Please make cheques payable to EYMS Band.

    The East Yorkshire Motor Services Band, current North of England Brass Band
    Champions, have announced further details of a concert at Hull University’s
    Middleton Hall on 26 September 2009 at 7:30pm in memory of their
    long-serving Secretary, Maurice Metcalfe, who passed away last October.
    Proceeds from the concert will be donated to Dove House Hospice, the local
    charity providing care for people with life-limiting illnesses. Band
    Chairman Tony Newiss paid tribute to Maurice’s contribution in establishing
    the band as the leading band within the region today: “Maurice was a
    dedicated Secretary to the band from its formation 20 years ago, and it was
    his combination of good humour, friendship and sheer hard work that made
    such an impact on the Band’s development.”

    The Band, which was founded by two music teachers, Bob Childs and Dixon
    Laing, had been planning an anniversary concert for the Band’s 20th
    Anniversary, and are delighted that Bob has agreed to return to Yorkshire
    to share the conducting for the concert with the Band’s Musical Director,
    Stan Lippeatt in the concert dedicated in memory of Maurice. Bob’s
    euphonium star son David will appear as a guest soloist for the concert.
    David is the Principal Euphonium player with the Cory Band from South
    Wales, the current European Champions, and recently appeared as featured
    soloist performing at the last night of the BBC Welsh Proms where he
    premiered Karl Jenkins’ Euphonium Concerto to great critical acclaim.

    Tickets priced £8 each (no concessions) for the memorial concert can be
    obtained by sending a cheque to EYMS Band, P.O. Box 938, Hull, HU7 4WX.
    Please make cheques made payable to EYMS Band.
