TOP BRASS COMES
Saturday the 19th July, Pennine Brass will be in concert with
Crofton Silver Band at
Director is Ian Porthouse, formerly solo cornet player with Leyland
Vehicles, Desford Colliery, Black Dyke and Yorkshire Building Society.
Ian has also worked with many orchestras and has been guest
soloist with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and New York Philharmonic
Orchestras. He is also
cornet tutor at the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain.
Brass will, of course, be ably supported by Crofton Silver Band,
conductor Robin Morgan having been solo euphonium player with Pennine
brass bands rarely come to Crofton, so an evening of varied and
colourful music is envisaged.
Posters advertising the concert will be on display around the village. This is a wonderful opportunity for people in the community to hear championship brass playing on their doorstep.
