  Brett Baker, Daniel Thomas, Richard Marshall and Zoe Lovatt-Cooper will be featured in recital performances.

The International Brass Band Summer School (IBBSS) has announced a series of recital programmes that will be featured on their on-line course this year.

It sees the IBBSS link up with Geneva Group star performers of Black Dyke Band and BrassPass.tv and will be broadcast free of charge around the banding world. They will take place on Sunday 2nd August and Monday 3rd August at 6.00pm (GMT)

Positive experience

IBBSS Course Administrator Alison Childs told 4BR: "Following the disappointment of having to cancel the 2020 IBBSS course, we wanted to create a real positive experience for everyone involved.

Being able to share these fantastic 'virtual' recitals has been one way of doing that — and they will be a real treat from world class performers. All this and they will be made free of charge so that everyone across the banding world can enjoy them."

Recitals

Highlights of the series will see the Queensbury band's principal cornet Richard Marshall perform 'Don't Doubt Him Now' by Leonard Ballantine, as well as Hermann Bellstedt's 'Princess Alice'.

Trombone star Brett Baker has chosen new repertoire by composer Rob Wiffin OBE, Prof of Conducting at the Royal Military School of Music, with his 'La Chica Sin Nombre' and his arrangement of Bertrand Moren's 'Carnival'.

Zoe Lovatt-Cooper's flugel horn set will include 'By Trevone Bay' by Paul Lovatt-Cooper and 'Meditation from Triumph of Time' by Peter Graham, whilst euphonium star Daniel Thomas will feature 'Fantasy' by Philip Sparke and the fun and games of Monti's famous 'Czardas'.

Close up

Speaking about the series, Course Director and Black Dyke Director of Music, Prof Nicholas Childs said: "There can be no better way to enjoy world class performers than hearing them close up in recital mode.

As you can imagine we worked exceptionally hard to ensure these recitals were undertaken safely during the current Coronavirus guidelines and my thanks go to Geneva and BrassPass for their superb efforts in enabling us to this.

Don't miss it. The recitals are free to view, and there will be an opportunity after the recital for the Q&A session, where the viewers can ask their questions direct to the performers."
