Bandtastic – The Brass Band Concert of 2017
For the first time ever, four of Cornwall’s finest brass bands showcase their own talents before coming together in a Massed Bands Finale.
Boasting a musical heritage spanning almost 200 years, this is a great opportunity to see some of Cornwall’s most talented musicians perform at their absolute best.
Featuring the bands of Camborne, St Austell, St Dennis and Roche Brass, this 'never seen before’ concert is held in memory of Del Wilton, a great brass band enthusiast, with the 100 strong massed bands playing some of his favourite music.
In December 2016, one of the undoubted stars of the brass band world, Roche's euphonium player Robert Jose took his own life. Tonight, each of the bands will play their own special tribute to Rob, with the massed bands performing a special euphonium feature in memory of him and Del.
The evening will support both Carrick MIND and Cornwall Search and Rescue Team with guest speakers from each, and is brought to you by Thinking of Del and Serenity Financial Planning, the UK’s largest Financial Life Planning firm. During the evening, we will hear insights of their work from the two charities CSART and MIND.
With 5 concerts in 1, this is surely an event not to be missed.
Running time: Approx 2hr, 30min (including interval)
