In eager anticipation of Durham University Brass Band and The Reg Vardy Band’s Gala Concert this Sunday, Music Durham are excited to announce half price tickets today for those who book before midnight tonight!
DUBB are thrilled to be taking to the stage with a band who have been crowned the North Of England Regional Champions 35 times, and are currently ranked as the 21st best Brass Band in the world.
Matthew Ruddock (DUBB’s Conductor) said “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! In the first half of the concert we’ll be playing an exciting selection of pieces including a new joint-composition by ex-student Dave Collins & last year’s Durham University Brass Composition Competition winner Jacob Ashworth called ‘Journey’, and my own arrangements of Eric Whitacre’s ‘Sleep’, and The Who’s ‘Pinball Wizard’! In the second half Reg Vardy will take to the stage to play music paying homage to artists such as J.S.Bach, Gustav Mahler, Miles Davis and John Williams”.
On Saturday, Reg Vardy will be giving a masterclass in the Durham University Music Department’s Concert Room from 9am to 4pm. Members of the public are welcome to come along and join in for just £10. DUBB are going to be surprised with some pieces they’ve never seen before, before joining the Reg Vardy Band on stage to finish the concert with them on Sunday night.
