Something old, something new …

BRASS FUSION teamed up with the Bothy Singers for two concerts on consecutive Saturdays in April featuring mustic that was old, new, borrowed and bluesy. 

The programme at Horley Baptist Church and Henfield Parish Church included joint numbers, such as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, along with band pieces ranging from Charpentier’s Te Deum  to Uptown Funk, by Mark Ronson, and Henry Mancini’s Peter Gunn.

Euphonium solist, Paul Labus, brought the house down with his performance of the gypsy dance, Czardas, by Vittorio Monti, and the concert closed with the band and singers joining together for a piece that combined Bonnie Tyler’s Holding Out of A Hero and music from Phantom of the Opera.

Special thanks to Henry Godwin for compering the concerts and Paul Seaman for photos from the Horley concert.
