Old Hall Brass were delighted to have been asked to perform as part of the Friends of Haigh Country Park ‘Picnic Brass’ season.
A large appreciative crowd were treated to a wide range of musical styles, from ‘Knight Templar’ to a Mozart overture (Magic Flute), a trip through paradise (Conquest of Paradise, Jurassic Park, Swinging Safari) and the band finished the first half with a ‘Salute to Sinatra’, a medley ending with ‘New York, New York’, which had some of the crowd high kicking!
The 2nd half continued in a similar vein, with a superb arrangement of ‘Nearer my God, to Thee’ being a highlight. After the final piece, (Theme from Superman), an encore was deservedly asked for, with ‘Music’ by John Miles beong played.
A great afternoon in the sunshine, and a lovely place to play.
