Just to keep you informed…I’m currently in France. I’m playing a concert with the brass band Mediterrannee conducted by Roy Terry. The band is based in Antibes, where we had a rehearsal last night. The concert will be in the church of Nice. I forgot to send Tom Boonen an invitation. Monaco is very close though. At the concert I’ll play the Golland No1 concerto and after that I’ll join the band as they don’t have a solo euphonium at the moment. After the break I’ll play Lament by Karl Jenkins and the famous Bravura by Peter Graham. I’m looking forward to this concert. Second time in france as a guest artist for Buffet-Crampon.
After this concert I’ll be back in Belgium for one busy day. Playing the very nice solo Fantasy for euphonium with wind orchestra conducted by the composer himself, Francois Glorieux. This will be in Antwerp in ‘de Zuiderkroon’ at 15.00
I wont be there for long as I have a regional competition with my band Brass Band Heist. We will play on sunday night in Turnhout. Battle Creek and Bello Gallico is on the program. Should be a busy but very good day.
On monday I’ll fly to my friends in Beaumaris again, to put the last bits together to go to the Royal Albert Hall for the weekend. I already did one weekend of rehearsals with them and the band sounded great. Will be interesting to see them a few weeks after that again. I believe the band even sound much better. I’m looking forward to perform Paul Lovatt-Cooper’s Breath Of Souls in the Albert Hall.
Just to keep you informed about my CD project… He will be there very soon! So stay tuned on all my media channels.
