Great visit

Special commission

Rebecca added: "It was rounded off with the massed band sounds of Consett Brass, Consett Salvation Army Band and White River Brass combining to premiere 'Four Nine Four' a commission composed by Paul Sharman and partly funded by the Northern Regional Brass Band Trust.

The piece, with multi-media accompaniment is dedicated to the memory of a Consett Durham Light Infantry soldier, John Edgar, who was killed in action during the conflict."
