Brass in Concert 

It has been a busy few months for the Virtuosi GUS band. Following the band’s appearance at the Royal Albert Hall for the National Finals, it was straight on to preparing for an appearance at Brass in Concert at the Sage Gateshead on Sunday 15 November. The band played a New York themed programme, narrated by actor Dale Gerrard, and including music by Bramwell Tovey, Peter Graham, Nigel Hess, Eric Whitacre and concluding with John Mackey’s brilliant ‘Asphalt Cocktail’ earning the band a very respectable 4th place from the adjudicators. 

The band will now go on to prepare for its Christmas Concerts in Kettering on 12th December, where Dale will once again feature alongside the band in narrating the story of Dickens’ Christmas Carol.
