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.
Carlton Forum was packed, as usual, for the concert which featured an eclectic mix of music: everything from a beautiful euphonium solo by Barry Tupper through a bit of Motown from Ryan, and some wonderfully performed Opera by the Alan Johnson Singers. The evening was topped off my some rousing proms music from the band, ably supported by the many voices (and plenty of union flags) in the hall.
The audience had an extra surprise during the proms – the band appeared in full fancy-dress!
