    Sunday 26 March 2006
    Celebrated Euphonium Player and Conductor of 'Buy as You View' Band
    Thorngate Halls, Gosport, Hants
    This is a full days activities to allow you to join us and experience the pleasure of playing with a large band under the direction of Bob
    The day also includes a master class and time to socialise with friends old and new
    The ‘band’ will be formed by all members attending the days activities. In order to achieve a good balance of instruments, early booking is essential to guarantee your place in the line up on your preferred instrument. The maximum number for the day is 75 players plus percussion. This is effectively ‘3 standard bands’. As spaces are filled late applicants may be requested to perform a different part/instrument for the day.

    Whilst the programme of music is designed to stretch the attendees it is also formulated to give an interesting repertoire to both the musicians and the audience.

    For those who wish to bring their ‘better halves’, Gosport allows free access to the shopping areas of Portsmouth - Commercial Road (city centre), Southsea and Gunwharf Quays. Southampton, Whitley Village and Chichester are all within easy travelling distances offering a wide variety of venues.
