Brass Players Tips - No. 1

Whooosh - Concert at St. Georges Bristol
Anyway - a date not to be missed - 4th October 2008 - 7.30 pm
Bristol Brass Consort (Very Big Version) PRESENTS !
- Mussorgsky (arr Elgar Howarth) Pictures at an Exhibition
- Strauss Festmusik der Stadt Wien
- Koetsier Symphony for Brass
- Sibelius (arr Joseph Krienes) Finlandia
More details at St. George's web site
Without wishing to big it up too much this concert will be Massive - (at least in numbers of players). Those who know our fabled GMS (tm - see previous posts) will appreciate how much opportunity this gives us (or me at least) for wandering around on stage looking vaguely lost.
For a more orderly (and quieter) concert the quintet will be playing at Holy Trinity Church, Minchinhampton on 12th October. Time and program to be decided, probably about 7.00 pm and likely to include some Koetsier and the Santa Barbara Sonata by Bram Tovey. And less wandering around.

Who switched the light on !
Hmmm, I wonder which of these it could be ?
Does this mean I'll be resurrecting this blog ?
Answers on a pinhead please (just kick off a couple of those angels).

Less value than a reflexology voucher
But enough of that, what's the title of this post all about then?
Well, I don't know how long this has been on the web but there is a page on the Clevedon Curzon Cinema web site that gives a list of winners for a prize draw held in December 2002. Our lovely CD "Music for Metal Instruments" was the 9th place prize which puts it just above a pair of tickets to the cinema, but below a bunch of reflexology vouchers for the 5th, 6th and 7th place prizes. And the 8th place prize was a CD by a string quartet! It's good to know your place.

Something worth looking at (no - not THIS blog)
Oh, and our brief stint at the Pindrop Club went down quite well.

... with no direction home ...
However, our 21st Birthday approaches (sometime in February) and St. George's on the 6th of May 2006 has been booked for our celebratory bash. We are now starting to work on the program for this concert and hope to include some exciting (and big) pieces from the brass repetoire.
