The Guardian Concert Band play on Friday 28th February – with the Cataleya Quintet
The concert takes place on Friday 28th February at 7:30pm. Tickets are £5 which includes refreshments at the interval and there will be a raffle too. The full address is: St Leonard’s Church, Church Brow, Walton le Dale, Lancashire, PR5 4HJ
After a long and miserably wet winter, for our first public concert of the year we’ve been asked by St. Leonard’s Church at Walton-Le-Dale to welcome the imminent arrival of Spring and hopefully a change in the weather.
Paul (Cooper, Musical Director) returns to lead the band after being temporarily sidelined due to injury and has put together a typically interesting programme that I’m sure won’t disappoint, unlike his jokes!
Also, as an extra special treat, there will be a performance by Cataleya Quintet.
This unique and ambitiously driven wind quintet is composed of musicians from the UK, Europe and the USA who met as Masters Scholars at the Royal College of Music.
They’re currently on tour in the North West giving evening recitals and performing workshops for local schools and being an award winning group will make a great listen on the night.
More about The Lytham St Annes Guardian Concert Band – Musical Director: Paul Cooper ARCM. BBCM.
The band is an established ‘all age all standard’ Lytham based ‘adult community wind band’ consisting of over 35 players from all over Fylde & West Lancashire .
The band was formed approximately 28 years ago and was predominately made up of employees from the Guardian Royal Exchange in Lytham. Since then the band has evolved and now our members are drawn from a wide cross section of the community including various professions, retired and students.
Guardian Ensemble was formed in Jan 2010 and comprises of 12 Brass & Woodwind players from the band. The aim of the Ensemble is primarily to promote the band, but also to offer performances where volume of sound, price and space are a concern. The ensemble is very fortunate to be led by 2 very talented musicians: Peter Goleby (solo clarinet) who also arranges for band & ensemble, as well as Annette Munro (solo clarinet).
