    Are Brighouse still coming to Dunfermline this weekend

    I think we were originally supposed to be up there on Sat 18th Feb but the date got pulled from the band job list. Don't know why. Anyway, in short, no, Brighouse aren't in Dunfermline during February. Shame, haven't been north of the border for a while now.....

    RNCM Festival of Brass 2008

    My, my......... Andy Scott on tMP - careful Andy - you'll be playing euphonium next... Congrats on the piece - although I missed Foden's performance - I've heard nothing but superlatives - and that's pretty special from banders - they're a tough audience!!!!

    A2 Music Recital - help please!

    Hi Aimee, Why don't you have a look at Anthony Roper's Sonata for Euphonium and piano (published by Studio Music). The music sounds heavily influenced by Vaughan-Williams, I guess you could make a tenuous link to folk music style in that way - but most importantly, I think for assessed...
