The band made the trip to Twickenham on 14th December to perform at “Festive Brass”, their annual concert with the Richmond Youth Brass Band and Fulham Brass Band. The evening saw a very receptive audience turn out to hear the bands perform a mix of music and in particular highlighted the development of the young musicians at the Richmond Youth Brass Band, which is directed by Vickie Curran who is Regent Brass’ Flugelhorn player.
Regent performed in the second half of the concert with a programme of “The Spirit of Christmas” by Peter Graham, “Rocking Carol” featuring principal cornet Barbara King, “On a Mission from God” by the band’s baritone player Phil Doe, “Candlelight Carol” by John Rutter, “Children of Sanchez” featuring Vickie Curran and Leroy Anderson’s “Christmas Festival”.
To round off the evening, the three bands joined forces under the direction of Fulham Brass Band conductor Rob Richardson and Alan Duguid with performances of “We Wish you a Merry Christmas” and “Jingle Bells”.
The band was delighted to be a part of this wonderful event and look forward to performing at the event again next year.
We would also like to thank the guest players who performed with us at the event.
