Far East Tour concert on Friday 28 June at 7pm – Amey Theatre. If you don't yet have your tickets for our pre-tour concert next Friday, it is not too late to get them! Come and hear our Touring Orchestra and Big Band just 36 hours before we set off for Japan and Hong Kong. We will be playing almost all of the music that we are taking on our epic tour to the Far East, including Beethoven's 3rd Piano Concerto with a different boy soloist in each movement, Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 2, Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March, Vaughan Williams' English Folksong Suite and several others not so highbrow, including a medley by Burt Bacharach and the March from Thunderbirds. The Big Band, too, will be much in evidence in its slimmed down form. Click here for Box Office tickets and here to see a digital copy of our tour brochure.
