The Eltham Community Centre has been restored and is magnificent. The band is excited to be performing a home coming concert. We hope you can join us. There is a musical menu to start with, then you are invited to stay for refreshments afterwards. The Musical Menu includes: The Finale of Dvorak’s New World Symphony. Naturally enough, we will be playing that at the end. The clarinet section demonstrating their prowess in “Place St. Henri”. 1920’s cool from Oscar Peterson Our own Will Jones performing “Rhapsody for Euphonium” by Jim Curnow. “Congestion Charge” depicting the traffic chaos in London, presumably before the Congestion Charge was introduced. An interesting work from the British composer Nigel Hess. Serenade for Wind Band by Derek Bourgeois.

There are all sorts of stories about this piece, including a suggestion that it was the processional music for his own wedding. Its rhythms are such that nobody can walk in time to it. “Looking Good”. A standard Jazz March by Sammy Nestico. The standard instrumentation for a “Wind Quintet” is Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Horn and Bassoon. The band has a fine flautist, an outstanding oboist, a consummate clarinettist, and a harmonious horn player. They will give the rest of the band a rest to bring you items that fit into this smaller instrumentation. The traditional Shenandoah, Micky Mouse as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and perhaps one more. Duke Ellington’s Sophisticated Ladies. A well arranged medley.
