Brass star to play with band

A DIVERSE range of music – from Rossini to Elvis Presley – will be presented by Market Rasen (RPC) Band this Saturday.

And the band is delighted to have secured the services of world-acclaimed euphonium virtuoso Michael Dodd for the evening of exceptional brass band music in the Bishop Greaves Theatre at University College Bishop Grosseteste in Lincoln.

Michael, who has recently returned from a tour of Australia with the Grimethorpe Colliery Band, will play five solos during the evening and is guaranteed to astonish those present with his mastery of the euphonium.

Tickets for the concert, which starts at 7.30pm, are available through the University College directly, by calling 01472 840870 or 07525 033192, by email flugelplayer@hotmail.co.uk or at the door on the night.

The Market Rasen (RPC) Band continues to develop into the county’s leading brass outfit and is already preparing for its annual Proms to Poppies concert, which this year will be held at The Lawn in Lincoln’s Union Road on Saturday, October 29.

The band will also be performing at the Lincoln Christmas Market on Saturday, December 3, between 1pm and 8pm.
