Two talented young musicians to perform with Southampton Concert Wind Band
On Sunday 29 April, Morro Barry and Lucy Gowans, two talented young musicians from Southampton Music Hub ensembles, will perform with Southampton Concert Wind Band in their “Stars of Tomorrow” concert at All Saints Church in Botley.
Southampton Concert Wind Band provide the opportunity for wind, brass and percussion players to make great music, and their director, Calum Gray, is an important part of the local amateur musical community. The band's repertoire incorporates a variety of musical styles including original, classical, shows, popular, traditional and jazz.
Southampton Concert Wind Band are keen to support and develop the talent of young musicians and invited the Southampton Music Hub to nominate two students to perform a solo with the band. Morro will be performing the first movement of the Gregson Tuba Concerto and Lucy the second movement of the Mozart Bassoon Concerto. Morro (14) and Lucy (12) are both in receipt of Music Awards from the hub and perform with several ensembles in Southampton and with groups at a national level.
Zoe Hunting, Ensemble Manager for Southampton Music Hub, says:
"This is a wonderful opportunity for two of Southampton’s most talented students to perform as soloists with the Southampton Concert Wind Band. We are very grateful for the opportunity the band have given to Morro and Lucy and wish them both all the very best for the evening”.
