Recent concert programmes

In an attempt to see what pieces are popular amongst bands in their current concert programmes, we invite you to list the pieces recently performed by your bands in your most recent concert. You may also, of course, list the programmes of any concerts you've been to listen to.

Please provide as much details as you can about each piece.

We are aware that this has been done on tMP a few years ago, but feel the time is right for a fresh approach.

Please note this thread cannot be used to advertise forthcoming concerts, or to post links to promote the selling of the music, there are other areas on tMP with their own guidelines to cover that sort of stuff.

Over to you..............................

Killamarsh's last own concert was based on a theme of a 1920/30s Mediterranean Cruise - we played

Coronation Scot
Adagio from Spartacus (Onedin Line)
Spread a Little Happiness
Buster Strikes Back (cornet solo)
Puttin on The Ritz

Satin Doll
Minnie The Moocher (bass trom solo)
Li'l Darlin'
The Millers Dance
As Time Goes By
Fantasia on Tico Tico
Encore - Amparita Roca

We then used the same programme plus a few extras at Stocksbridge Band Club so as above less Tico Tico, Adagio and Buster Strikes Back plus

All In The April Evening
The Last Spring
Here There And Everwhere (cornet solo)
Only Love (flugel solo)
Montreal Citadel

I think for our next two concerts in May we'll be using the above with a few more changes as we bring in our summer outdoor music.

We try to adapt the programme as we move through the year and our next target theme will be for a concert in September at Heacham to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown in USA.


Our recent St. George's Day Concert:

I Got Rhythm
When the Saints
I Don't Know How to Love Him (Tenor Horn solo)
American Patrol
Norwegian Wood
Dear Lord and Father
My Fair Lady
Somewhere out There
Lord of the Dance

Comedians Gallop
All Creatures Great and Small
Autumn Leaves
Ticket to Ride
Yellow Submarine
Bridge over the River Kwai
Fantasia on British Sea Songs (Wood)
Land of Hope and Glory

Who is the publisher? - I'd love to get it

De Haske is the publisher of the version we played (Dead Mans Chest). If you wanted to order it make sure you specify the version as DH also do a 'slightly easier' medley from the first film.

Hope that this helps.
