About the Concert
Surrey Brass return to Richmond after a gap of several years to perform a Summer Spectacular concert. The musical programme will contain something to please all musical tastes, including Classical, Film Music, Jazz and Popular repertoire. Much of the music will feature arrangements made specially by members of Surrey Brass, and cannot be heard elsewhere. We take particular pleasure in using our unique Symphonic Brass sound to create a highly varied palette of sounds which facilitates many musical styles.
We are delighted to welcome our guest soloist, the lyric soprano Corinne Spencer who will perform a range of music specially arranged for soprano and brass ensemble.
This concert is special for Surrey Brass since we are saying farewell to our conductor of several years, Jonathan Spencer, who is moving on from his current post as Bandmaster of the Royal Logistics Corps Band to a new and exciting posting as Bandmaster of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment. However, it's not goodbye since Surrey Brass have plans to undertake our first tour - to Gibraltar in 2020 to renew our acquaintance. We hope to be able to perform within a cavern within the Rock of Gibraltar which has been used for a concert hall for many years, among other things.
