100 Not Out!

Euphonium soloist Charley Brighton and accompanist Malcolm Stowell will perform their 100th. recital piece on May 14th. at St. Mary’s Parish Church, Slough.

The lunchtime recital is the duo’s 18th. since May 2001 and the 100th. piece will be the premiere of ‘Recollections’ for Euphonium & Organ, written for Charley by Terry Treherne, his former Musical Director at Alder Valley (Aldershot) Band.

Two other premieres will also feature in the recital, the final movement of a suite called Dances with Europe by a young 18 year old American composer Seth Jervis, and ‘The Kiss of Light’ by Australian composer Yvonne Anthony.

Since 2004, Charley has also introduced young, rising talent as soloists to St. Mary’s, including Alex Seedhouse (euphonium), Ben Tubb & Stephen Lock (tenor horn) and this concert will feature 17 year old Louise Wright, a euphonium player with the Solent Concert Band from Portsmouth.

This concert will be the 2nd. by Charley as a performing artist for Willson Band Instruments of Switzerland and he will feature the very latest model Euphonium throughout the recital.

On display will be some 8 different vintage Euphoniums dating back too 1891! Charley will also feature one of these in a rendition of the Rondo from Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto.

The recital is free and starts at 12 noon. Refreshments are served afterwards.
