LSO Visit Hammonds

Dudley Bright working with the bandWhile it was not the full orchestra we were lucky enough to have one of our rehearsals taken by Dudley Bright, the principal trombone of the London Symphony Orchestra.
Dudley spent an evening with us in the run up to the English Nationals contest to rehearse his own composition, Pursuing Horizons. The piece was originally written for an orchestral brass group and then expanded as a massed band piece as part of the celebrations of 120 years of the International Staff Band. The piece has now been scored for a single band to play and it was this version we played at the recent contest.

The band would like to offer their thanks to Dudley for taking the time to travel up to Huddersfield and spending the evening giving us an insight into his composition.
