Music for Greenwich

The Fulham Brass Band played a varied programme to an appreciative audience at Greenwich Park on 3rd August 2008. Principal Cornet player Andrew Sladen played the beautiful ‘My Love is Like a Red Red Rose’ whilst solo tenor horn, Kate Brown performed ‘I know him so well’.

Trios from both backrow cornets (Buglers Holiday) and trombones (Frolic for Trombone) both provided excitement inbetween slow pieces.

This concert also saw two of our backrow cornet players making thier debut solo performances – 2nd cornet Hazel Bloor taking to the solo stand to provide a excellent performance of ‘Share my Yoke’ whilst 3rd cornet player Mike Boyd gave an emotional rendition of ‘Concerto de Arenjeuz’ middle movement.
