New recording by Vernon Building Society (Poynton) Band

We have spent the weekend recording the Vernon Building Society (Poynton) Brass Band at Great Moor Junior School in Stockport.

The band, long established as one of the north west’s premier ensembles, feature a number of solo items on this project in addition to ‘The Anson’, a newly commissioned piece of music written to celebrate the Anson Engine Museum which is based in Poynton and which houses a number of industrial engines many of which originated in the area.

The CD will be available in September and to learn more about the band visit their website at http://www.poyntonband.co.uk/

International Military Music Society’s latest CD

We have completed the work on the double album recorded earlier this year with the 2011 International Military Band.

The project, initiated by the International Military Music Society features members of three of the Guards Bands of the Household Division together with some thirty other international musicians from around the world, brought together in London to record a series of marches under the direction of twelve international military directors of music.

The unique project includes marches from the individual member societies, some forty in all, and is aptly named “40 Marches Around The World”  The CD will be available to purchase from the 1st of August.
