Ledbury Community Brass Band is proud to present its first Last Night of the Proms concert on Saturday, September 23 at 7.30pm in Ledbury’s Market Theatre.

A couple of weeks after the end of this year’s BBC Proms the band is planning on giving Ledbury its own version of the traditional flag-waving repertoire, combined with brass band favourites.

The band will be joined by soprano soloist Donna Porter as Britannia, and the evening will include Henry Wood’s Fantasia on British Sea-Songs as well as Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March (with “Land of Hope and Glory”). There will also be opportunities to hear some of the band’s own star players in solo numbers including principal cornet Martin Price.

Still a newcomer to the local music scene, Ledbury’s Community Brass Band has come a long way in the last few years, with an increased number of players including local youngsters and the band is thriving under the expert baton of musical director Colin Herbert.

The Last Night of the Proms with Ledbury Community Brass Band will be on Saturday, September 23 at 7.30pm. To book, call the box office on 07967 517125 or visit themarkettheatre.com
