Leyland cross the Pennines for Best of Brass

The band’s first concert outing following the success at the North West Area competition, is a trip over the Pennines to appear in the Best of Brass series in Morley Town Hall, Leeds.

James Nash

Leyland conducted by Thomas Wyss, present a trademark eclectic variety of music in one of our favourite venues and audience. There’s a definite movies influence after the Oscars were awarded last weekend, and music also from Elgar and Berlioz.

James Nash, Leyland’s soprano cornet player and Principal Trumpet of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain will perform Aratunian’s fantastic Trumpet Concerto – the first time Leyland have performed this work. James, having excelled in the band’s performance in the North West Area competition is also progressing in the current heats of the BBC Young Brass Musician competition.

Hands Across The Sea, Le Corsair, Aratunian Trumpet Concerto, Chanson De Matin, Pines Of Rome, What Now My Love, Hejre Kati, Out of Africa, The Sun Has got His Hat On, Nordic Polska, Star Wars Theme, The Incredibles
