A tiring day!

Carlton Brass kicked off the summer season with two concerts in one day last Saturday. An open-air concert in the Market Square was followed by a Proms concert in the evening.

Christmas in Newark

Carlton Brass will be playing, once again, at Barnby Gate Methodist Church in Newark on Saturday December 12th at 7:30pm. This time the band will be playing a selection of Christmas Music to get everyone in the festive spirit.

Gedling Proms 2009

Saturday 28th February saw Carlton Brass enjoying another performance at the Gedling Proms. The band are proud to play at this event, in support of the Major of Gedling’s chosen charity, and this weekend’s concert was a lot of fun.

Sharing the stage this year were the Alan Johnson Singers (an excellent Operatic group who have shared Christmas duties at Lakeside with the band for the last few years) and the talented crooner Ryan Brodsky.

Nottingham Market Square

10th December 2008. Various members of the Carlton Brass Organisation, both young and old, will be performing Christmas Carols in Nottingham Market Square from 18:30.

This is a good time to catch both the Training Band and senior band playing together so please come down to support us.

Lakeside Carols

8th/14th/21st/22nd December 2008. Carlton Brass will be performing Christmas Carols and a selection of Christmas-themed music at Lakeside Tower between 19:00 and 21:30. There will also be some operatic fair from the Alan Johnson Singers. Prepare to be serenaded from the balcony!

‘Tis The Season

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat. And Carlton Brass have begun the busy Christmas concert season in style.

Thursday 4th December saw the band performing at Southwell Minster. This was the annual MacMillan Christmas concert that we’ve been able to support as an organisation for the past seven years. It’s a favourite of ours in the banding calender as it’s a great charity and a wonderful venue for a concert.

Joining us at the Minster were Carlton Male Voice Choir, who were in excellent voice, and the rather wonderful Lace City Chorus who just seem to get better and better every year. The Minster was packed to the rafters with an audience that enjoyed an evening of Christmas-themed music.
