The award winning Bournemouth Concert Brass, returns to Regent Centre in Christchurch with their annual New Year Viennese Concert on Sunday 5 January at 3pm.
The band’s resident conductor, Bill Willis, is in charge of the baton for the afternoon. Bill has been with the Band since 1993 and has written some of the arrangements for this year’ concert.
The warm, burnished brass sound of the Strauss family and their famous Viennese waltzes, polkas and marches are guaranteed to blow those winter blues away.
Following Strauss favourites like ‘The Blue Danube’ and the ‘Radetzky March’, other highlights of this perennially popular concert will include pieces by other famous composers who worked in Vienna at the time, including Franz Lehar and Mozart
Bournemouth Concert Brass is undoubtedly one of the top bands in Britain today – a tribute to its long and distinguished history. The band was formerly called The Bournemouth Silver Band, which was born at the turn of the century in Boscombe and Southbourne.
It is former winner of prestigious festivals and the West of England Championship and has been a finalist at the National Brass Band Championships at the Albert Hall.
This year the band completed its 22nd summer season of concerts at the Pine Walk Bandstand in Bournemouth.
