Following the success of the inaugural Tenor Horn Spotlight at the Black Dyke Brass Arts Festival last year, which saw over 50 tenor horn players travelling from as far afield as Bristol and Newcastle, Sunday 17[SUP]th[/SUP] May will see the second event, once again in the magnificent Leeds Town Hall. Due to the popularity of the event last year, we have now secured a larger room to accommodate an unlimited amount of places. The morning workshop will be Led by Black Dyke’s Principal horn Jonathan Bates, with assistance from Helen Varley and Alison Childs focussing on every aspect of the modern tenor horn player, from band playing to solo playing, repertoire choices to brands of valve oil!!! Again there will be the opportunity for delegates to play in a massed tenor horn ensemble on some new arrangements, a chance to chat individually and get to know the members of the horn section, and ask any questions regarding playing or preparation that delegates can think of. One of the highlights for many delegates last year was performing accompanied by Black Dyke in the afternoon gala concert, and this year the band are delighted to confirm that this will again be the case, performing the horn trio ‘Theme from Elvira Madigan’ as part of a section dedicated to showcasing those at the morning spotlight events for Cornet, Tenor Horn and Lower Brass. The day will start at 9:30am running until around 4pm. The cost for the full day is £5 and you can register your place or interest this year by emailing Jonathan Bates at email@example.com with: YOUR NAME – YOUR BAND – YOUR ABILITY LEVEL (Band section/grades) – PREFERRED PART (solo, 1[SUP]st[/SUP], 2[SUP]nd[/SUP]) and EMAIL ADDRESS.
