  • Guy Woolfenden - Gallimaufry

The band size dipped a little - we seem to have a real problem with single reeds - but we were still able to play through a good program of things and stuff. This time the John Williams was slow and (mainly) quiet!
  • Leonard Bernstein - Slava!
  • Malcolm Arnold - Prelude, Siciliana and Rondo
  • Percy Grainger - British Watersides
  • John Williams - Hymn to the Fallen
  • William Walton - Orb and Sceptre

We certainly built on the success of the first workshop, with nearly forty musicians involved. The bigger band meant we were able to tackle a more challenging selection of music:
  • John Williams - Olympic Fanfare and Theme
  • Percy Grainger - Irish Tune from County Derry
  • Philip Sparke - Sunrise at Angel's Gate
  • Robert Russell Bennett - Suite of Old American Dances

Although the inaugural band was smaller than hoped for, the day was a great success, and we were able to work through a varied selection of music:
  • John Barnes Chance - Elegy
  • Gustav Holst - First Suite in E flat
  • Lord Berners - The Triumph of Neptune (selection)
  • Ralph Vaughan Williams - Toccata Marziale
  • John Williams - Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (selection)
