AMERSHAM CONCERT BRASS
Sunday 28th April 4.30pm
Concert Brass is just one of a wide range of ensembles in the ‘Amersham Band’ group, catering for musicians of almost all ages and abilities, with membership from Amersham and the surrounding areas. Since last playing at the Festival in 2022, the band has gone from strength to strength. They continue to be led by conductor Malcolm Peach, who brings his wide musical tastes to the band, sometimes outside traditional brass band repertoire. The adage ‘from Bach to the Beatles’ rings true with an Amersham Concert Brass programme.
The band’s core work is regular concerts, mostly supporting the Amersham community, but also further afield such as their ‘pilgrimage’ to northern brass band heartland for the Whit Friday Marches. Concert Brass also proudly continues the Amersham Band tradition of both hosting and visiting friends from the twin town of Bensheim, Germany.
An important aspect of the brass band tradition lies in ‘band contests’, so they were delighted to make their first outing onto the contest stage in 2023, finishing 5th in the National 3rd Section, plus picking up the award for ‘Best Basses’.
