Be surprised in Concert Three by a “Concerto for Trombone and Wind Band” performed by Hong Kong born Ming Yeung Li, composed by Barry McKimm, with the stunning “Angels in the Architecture” by Frank Ticheli. The concert opens with the “Funeral Music for Queen Mary II” – Mary’s uncle was Charles II, who ruled the three kingdoms, and it was he that insisted that she be brought up as Anglican. She was widely mourned in Britain at her death, her funeral service was the first of any royal attended by all the members of both Houses of Parliament and for the ceremony, composer Henry Purcell wrote Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary.
Take a minute to read the diverse descriptions of the music we intend to present next year and lock the dates into your diary. You will not only have a wonderful time, but you will also discover the whole rich sound world of the contemporary Wind Band.
Join us in 2023 to hear the sound that so impressed “The Cat Empire” that they asked us to lay down a couple of tracks for their new album (to be released in 2023).
