Brassfest Elsecar

On Saturday Harlequin Brass appeared at the Brassfest event at the Elsecar Heritage Centre in front of a large crowd who were enjoying a full programme of brass music of various styles.

The group were naturally keen to impress the crowd and I wanted to do it by showing great ensemble skill and communication.

I was impressed by the way the session started and the group played with their usual poise and balance. There were some magical moments and I felt that the audience warmed to the ensemble as the concert progressed.

The P.A system had a few problems and I was never sure if the announcements could be clearly heard. As a result I probably rushed the group into the last two items having tired them out with O Magnum Mysterium.

They worked extremely hard to get through the arrangement of Caravan and the Finale and should be very happy with the appearance at this event.

I\'m fairly sure that they spelled Brassfest as Brasfest but I just can\'t remember which it was. Perhaps the latter was my imagination-some kind of bizarre lingerie day?

Maybe not!
