In addition to the contest, we have an appealing performance lined up for this year’s Saturday Gala Concert, with Foden’s Band and Matt Ford presenting a themed set entitled Sinatra and the Swing Legends.
Take a look at this promotional video :
This will follow Elementary workshops, taster sessions and a performance by Manger Musikklag from Norway as well as the inaugural Youth Brass in Concert Championships which commence at 12 noon.
Saturday afternoon will also see a masterclass by a Yamaha artist. This will be held in the Northern Rock Foundation Hall at 4.00pm. Admission is free for this, although patrons are advised to be there early as numbers are limited.
Brass in Concert will have further announcements relating to this year’s Festival in the next few weeks, including the continuation of the audience vote award. Tickets are selling faster than ever, so we urge anyone wishing to attend in November to avoid any disappointment by contacting the Ticket Office or logging on to the Sage Gateshead website very soon.”
