Gloucester Cathedral Concert - Saturday 19th May
Kapitol Promotions Ltd, the organisers of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, are delighted to announce a fabulous musical concert that will be taking place on Saturday 19th May 2018 in Gloucester. As the first of their new "Cathedral Series" of concerts, and surrounded by the wonderful architecture of Gloucester Cathedral, two ensembles will perform in a Spring Concert featuring a diverse range of music to suit all tastes.
Flowers Brass Band, who were recently crowned "West of England" Regional Champions - for the 7th time in the last 9 years - and who will be representing the "West of England" at the National Finals in October, will be showcasing their dazzling talents at this concert as they perform a wide range of entertaining pieces throughout the evening. Flowers Band are one of the highest ranked brass bands in the world, so under the direction of Musical Director, David Childs (who is regarded as the finest euphonium player of his generation), their appearance at this concert is not to be missed!
Also performing during this terrific evening of music-making will be ReChoir, a contemporary chamber group based in South Wales. They describe themselves as a "function choir with a unique take on modern choral music", and have performed extensively all over the country including on the 2013 UK tour of Godspell and bizarrely for Domino's Pizza's 20 year celebrations!
The concert will be expertly compèred by the engaging David Hayward, and tickets are available right now. Tickets are priced at £20.00 (Front Nave) and £15.00 (Rear Nave) for adults, and £10.00 (Front Nave) and £7.50 (Rear Nave) for children ages 5-16, so please contact the Gloucester Cathedral Box Office on 01452 768928 or visit the Gloucester Cathedral website for more information and to book your tickets.
