    Brass Band fans will welcome the news that the Soham Comrades Band, with support from the Soham Festival Society, is bringing a Celebrity Concert to the town this month.

    The guest soloists are the percussion group O Duo, led by OWEN GUNNELL. Owen has considerable experience having won the percussion section of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition in 2000 and performed with the leading orchestras in Great Britain. Since forming O Duo in 2000, Owen Gunnell and Oliver Cox have performed to critical acclaim, winning 'Best Music Art of the Fringe, 2003' at the Edinburgh Festival and, in 2004, 'The Philip and Dorothy Green Award for Young Concert Artists'.
    The Comrades Band will be conducted by the newly-appointed Musical Director, CHRIS KING, Bandmaster with the Minden Army Band based at Bassingbourn Barracks.

    What promises to be an exciting evening of music opens this year’s programme for the Comrades and the Festival Society at the Lodeside Hall, Soham Village College at 7:30pm on Saturday 19th February. Tickets priced at £5 (£4 concessions) from Soham Book Shop or on the door. For more details see our website (www.sohamcomradesband.org.uk) or e-mail sohamcomradesband@hotmail.co.uk
