    On Saturday November 7th. Willson UK Euphonium Artist Charley Brighton will be premiering the brass band version of Terry Treherne's new Euphonium solo 'Maestoso Spiritoso' as a guest with the Staines Band of the Salvation Army, in Woodthorpe Road, Ashford, Middx.

    Bandmaster Tim Parker will conduct the premier of the brass band version of the piece, written for me and piano accompanist Malcolm Stowell originally, and performed at St. Mary's, Slough earlier this year.

    Also in the programme is a special adaptation (with the arrangers permission) of Sunrise, Sunset from Fiddler on the Roof. Original scored for flute & piano, and John Golland's 'Peace'.
