Maidstone Wind Symphony is joined by a wealth of world-class soloists for the annual Festival of Wind and Brass. Rex Richardson (trumpet), Les Neish (tuba) and Andy Findon (flute) will all join the orchestra in performances of the wind band music of Andy Scott to celebrate the launch of the new collaborative CD Roar! - The Wind Band Music of Andy Scott.

Rex, one of the very best trumpet soloists in the world, is flying in from America to premiere a dynamic jazz-influenced trumpet concerto written for him by Andy Scott. Europe's most recorded flute player Andy Findon will perform the beautifully poignant Fujiko while Les will wow audiences with his virtuosity on the tuba in the concerto Salt of the Earth. If that wasn't enough, the festival concert also features soprano Helen Bailey and a massed choir performing Johan de Meij's Symphony No 4, Sinfonie der Lieder. Stephen Richardson's Collision Theory and additional works by Andy Scott complete the programme for the orchestra under the baton of music director Jonathan Crowhurst.

Admission is free for MWS Season Ticket Holders but must be booked.

Full programme:         Stephen Richardson - Collision Theory, Andy Scott - Paquito, Andy Scott - Trumpet Concerto Freedom of Movement, Andy Scott - Fujiko, Andy Scott - Salt of the Earth, Johann De Meij - Symphony No. 4, Sinfonie der Lieder

The festival programme will also include a series of workshops and masterclass sessions during the day with our featured soloists. Participation in the masterclasses is £10 per person and includes a free ticket for the evening's gala concert. For more information and to register your interest  education@maidstonewindsymphony.org
