Appearing in concert with their guests, the Military Wives’ Choir, Portsmouth on Sunday 21st February 2016, the band presented a programme on a truly large scale. An impressive opening with an arrangement based on the soundtrack from the film ET; further ambitious and powerful classics followed such as the overture Zampa and the cleverly skittish but remarkable A Spin Through Moscow.
Soloists from within the band, Tim Mulkern on trumpet and later in the second half Ian Kingshott on trombone added real style to the programme; Ian featuring in a Matt McDermott arrangement The Best of Broadway and Tim playing an expressive rendition of Nessun Dorma.
As the band struck up their finale, beginning with A Bridge Too Far and Kamen’s highly emotive Band of Brothers theme, the approval of the audience was without question. A standing ovation and encore followed the combined band and choir rendition of the Britannic Salute…
The band returns again to Worthing in a spectacular one-off concert with the magic and mastery of James Morrison on Sunday 26th June 2016!
