Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 10 January 2021


Hello Brass Banders

Welcome to another two-hours of brass band music from Sunday Bandstand.

Another first this week with the show being played on Ribble FM 106.7 which covers the Ribble Valley in the North West of the England.
Brass band players and enthusiasts will be able to listen to the show every Sunday from 2 pm to 4 pm.

Michael Antrobus the Liverpool-born trumpet player and conductor, served many years as a musician in the military and orchestras, as well as being Resident Conductor of Black Dyke Mills Band from 1978-81, moved to Norway in 1981 to work as a teacher at Manger Folkehøgskule. From the very first day, he made a huge impact on the Norwegian banding movement. He became the musical director of Manger Musikklag, Eikanger-Bjorsvik, Stavanger Brass Band, Tertnes Brass and several more.

He opened the eyes and ears of musicians and audience to a brand-new type of music, with concerts and projects and tutoring. He also gave so many memorable moments from the podium, both with his witty introductions and through his utter dedication to making music. Whenever he was on the podium, the audience knew that they would get something special.

Michael passed away in 2016 and conducted to the very end of his life; it was only a few days before his death that he had his last rehearsal with Montebello Brass, preparing - as he said - true music (A Moorside Suite) for the Siddis Brass contest in November!

We are featuring one of his daughter's solo arrangements on this week's show.
