Q: Question from Sue
For your August concert, I hope Mr. Liddell will consider playing a couple of 'brass band' pieces in honour of conductor Bramwell Tovey who passed away on July 12 of sarcoma. A lovely man and a superb conductor, he appeared with the Hannaford Street Silver Band some years ago. Thank you! Add an answer to this item.
A: Answer from John Liddle
Thanks for remembering Bramwell. He was a truly great man. I was at the same concert as you, when he played piano and euphonium all the while conducting that great band. We don’t have any brass band literature programmed for the next concert. However we have a Canadian composition by Eddie Graf. Bramwell was a champion of new and original works and I think that this piece ,Trade Winds, would have made him smile. This will open our August 4th concert.
See you there,

Hope a great time was had by all at the concert. My dad will be thrilled. He used to play clarinet with Encore. He is now 104 and going strong!
Will this concert be recorded? I would love to show it to my dad, a former Encore member and friend of Eddy Graf’s.
A: Answer from Ivy
