    Hi Folks,
    I will give the UK premiere of 'Little Suite for Euphonium' by Ohio composer Elaine Fine next saturday (4th.) at St. Mary's.
    Elaine sent the music to me a couple of months back and I was delighted to get this new unaccompanied work and to be able to give the first UK concert performance.
    There are 3 short movements, a Preludio, very much in the classical style, a passionate Reverie and finally a humerous Puppet Dance. The work was written for American euphonium soloist Chris Dickey.
    Brass at St. Mary’s, Church Street, Slough, Berkshire, UK Saturday, August 4th.
