    LUUMS Brass Band (Leeds University Union Music Society), Durham University Brass Band and the University of Warwick Brass Society will join together for a special concert in the Great Hall at the University of Leeds on Saturday 25th February.

    Last year the Leeds and Durham bands shared the concert stage in Durham. The concert this year has arisen through a number of coincidences, Ben Ridgeon, a manager of LUUMS is the twin brother of Joe the conductor of Durham. Lucy Jackson, the secretary of LUUMS has a brother Chris who is the president of Warwick. The three bands are very much looking forward to the concert on what promises to be an exciting and enjoyable evening. Each band will play their own programme before the bands get together for a spectacular massed band finale which will include Hymn to the Fallen, Shine as the Light and Procession to the Minster.

    The concert starts at 7:30pm and tickets will be available on the door priced £4, £3 and £2.

    I helped out at the Durham/Leeds concert last year. It was a great laugh, even if in our wisdom we left my car down Old Elvet with several thousand pounds worth of various instruments in overnight!! Mind you, I never get the pint i was promised for playing :( I had travelled up from Sheffield especially.
  5. should be fun :)

    any idea about Durham and Warwick's programmes?

    Yeah, but too much drinking before might not be a good thing for our playing!

    As are we all!

    Then I'm sorry to have to tell you that I think we've dropped Celtic Suite from our set. (Nothing personal, Philip.)

    Looking forward to hearing Call of the Cossacks though. Great piece. So apart from those tmpers who have replied so far, are any others playing in the concert, or coming to watch us?!

    Much as I'd like to pop across from York for this concert, unfortunately we have our Uni concert band rehearsal on Saturday night (5 'till 7, followed by Pub!! :D), so it looks like I'll have to give it a miss this time! :(

    Best wishes for the concert,

    Darryl, pull a sickie from your Concert Band rehearsal and come to our concert with some support from Shepherds! What are you doing mentioning such inferior musical ensembles as concert bands on tmp anyway?

    The massed band was HUGE. Really enjoyed it, although I did almost pass out on the last note of Procession :)
