Wednesday 12 October, 2016

Fulham Brass Band will feature the music of acclaimed British composer Gavin Higgins in its forthcoming concert on Sunday 23 October.

Gavin’s work will sit within a varied programme of music including Ray Farr’s Intrada on Ein Feste Burg and Kenneth Downie’s Majesty Variations, as well as popular favourites Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral (Wagner trans. Himes) and Knight Templar (Allen).

The concert starts at 3.00pm and more details can be found on the Fulham Brass Band Facebook page.
