Woodfalls Band are set to give a spectacular 135th Anniversary "Last Night of the Proms" gala concert in the majestic setting of Salisbury Cathedral in September. And the band will be featuring international trumpet star Crispian Steele-Perkins as a soloist, thanks to The Mouthpiece.com. Regular readers of the brass band forum helped suggest names of well-known soloists who could help our concert go with a bang and several people suggested Crispian. Woodfalls Band got in contact and were delighted when Crispian said yes to this engagement. The trumpet virtuoso, who can be heard performing the pyrotechnics that introduce BBC’s Antiques Roadshow, will be giving a full performance of Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto plus other solos during the evening. Darren Bartlett, the Songster Leader to the Boscombe Corps of The Salvation Army will also be featured during the gala concert. Darren is a leading member of the International Staff Songsters, the director of the acclaimed vocal group Salva Costa and a much-in-demand soloist across the world. Mezzo Soprano Christine Bryan will also share the platform with the band for Handel’s “Where e’er you walk” and the traditional last night of the proms epic “Fantasia on British Sea Songs” The programme for the event will also feature performances of Strauss’ Fest Musik, Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals and Suite Gothique by Boellman.
