Carlton Brass kicked off the summer season with two concerts in one day last Saturday. Starting in the afternoon the band performed in the St Georges Day celebration in Nottinghams ‘Old Market Square’ where we perfrormed to a massed crowd of several hundred people who all enjoyed a varied programme including solos from the bands Principle Cornet (Andrew Alison) and Solo Euphonium (Barry Tupper). A special mention must go to Andrew and to James Conheeney (Repiano Cornet) who deputised admirably for the volcano affected Rutty with the vocal contributions in Cartoon Classics!
The band moved on to perform a St Georges Day Proms concert for Mapperley Rotary Club in West Bridgeford. At the end of the evening there were a lot of tired and bruised lips but for the first outing of the summer season we gave it our best.
Special thanks must go to all our friends who helped out on this very busy day!
