The World’s most famous Brass Band returns to Leeds Town Hall

 

The renowned Black Dyke Brass Band returns to Leeds Town Hall for a gala concert on Sunday 4 June at 3pm, featuring internationally acclaimed soloist Peter Moore, Principal Trombone of the London Symphony Orchestra and 2008 winner of BBC Young Musician of the Year. Other guests include the Yorkshire Youth Band.

 

The programme will feature music for everyone, with favourites including the Golden Swing of Black Dyke and its fantastic Soloists’ Showcase. The grand finale with over 200 musicians will include Ron Goodwin’s 633 Squadron, Arthur Sullivan’s The Lost Chord and Tchaikovsky’s magnificent Slavonic March.

 

Since winning BBC Young Musician in 2008, Peter Moore has appeared as soloist with the Northern Chamber Orchestra, Brighton Philharmonic, the Polish Chamber Orchestra at the Rheingau and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festivals in Germany, and at the European trombone festival The Slide Factory in Rotterdam. He has given recitals at major venues and festivals throughout the UK and toured extensively in Australia and New Zealand – an impressive list for a 20 year old musician to achieve!

 

The Black Dyke Band is the 2016 Yorkshire Regional Champion and has held the British Open title thirty times, most recently in 2014. The band has always been at the forefront of brass band activity, making one of the earliest brass band recordings in 1904 and embarking on a five month tour of Canada and the United States in 1906. Black Dyke Band has over 350 recordings to its name and has provided background music to television and film and BBC Songs of Praise.
