Although it is difficult to believe after the ‘drought’ conditions we are have been having locally, the last weekend was spent recording the first of a number of projects in preparation for Christmas!
The forthcoming Christmas CD by the Middleton Band features music exclusively by Salford born composer Darroll Barry. In 1978 he enrolled on the band musicianship course at Salford University and went on to study with Joseph Horovitz at the Royal College of Music in London.
He now resides and works in Oman with his wife Rachael and is employed by the Royal Guard of Oman as Resident Composer and Arranger, a job which keeps him very busy writing and arranging music for all occasions and different combinations including bands, pipes and bands, fanfare teams and big band.
The CD will be available in the autumn but to learn more about this successful band visit their website at www.middletonband.com
