Gala entertainment on offer at Symphony Hall

Black Dyke and Cory may not be taking to the British Open stage this weekend, but they will still provide great entertainment at Symphony Hall on Sunday afternoon.

Dyke and Cory
  The two heavyweights will be entertainment mode on Sunday afternoon

Although there is no British Open Championship this weekend, there is still the opportunity to hear two of the most successful bands in the contest's history on the Symphony Hall stage.

Black Dyke and Cory

Black Dyke and Cory will be performing at the Brass Gala Concert at Symphony Hall on Sunday 12th September (2.30pm) and are offering diverse programmes to ensure top class entertainment for brass band lovers.

Cory includes music from Edward Elgar with his iconic 'Severn Suite' as well as parts of their thrilling Brass in Concert title winning 'Jungle Book' set.

Black Dyke meanwhile pay a nod of musical metaphorical homage to the British Open with their PLC opener, 'Home of Legends' as well as bringing taste of the big band classics and a rousing 'Fire in the Blood' finisher.

The two will then join forces for massed band items that are sure to shake the foundations of the hall and its restructured surroundings that now provide a fantastic Symphony Hall visiting experience.
