    The JMU Brass Band will be on tour in England and Wales, 26 June-7 July, 2008. It is possible that the concert originally scheduled for 4 July in Durham may not take place, so the band is hoping to find another venue and possibly a band interested in a joint concert on that date. The ensemble will be performing at the Brighouse Festival of Brass the following day, so a venue within a 100 mile radius would be most welcome.

    Hi, Kevin!

    I can't help directly, but anyone who is considering answering this post needs to know this is a great ensemble (James Madison University Brass Band from the USA) and putting on a concert with them would be a GOOD idea!

    The JMU Brass Band now has a concert set for 4 July, thanks to the United Co-op Milnrow Band and director John Ward.

    Other tour plans have changed and the band now has plans to visit London, July 2-3. We would be interested in pursuing a joint concert with a London based band during our stay. Either evening would work well.

    Best of luck with your search for a London concert - can't help you with setting anything up, but will certainly try to get along, and would gladly help with publicity etc.

    Are we to presume that you weren't able to fix anything up in the London area?

    We never did find a venue for our time in London. Would have loved to though.

    We're looking forward to the concert in Cardiff - Dances and Arias has been a real trip down memory lane. What a great piece!

    I'm looking forward to hearing both Dances and Arias, as well as Music of the Spheres. Should be a great concert!
