Eagley Band – The 2020 Video Series!

by Deb Lyons

Towards the very end of 2019, Eagley Band was one of the bands which performed a full concert ‘live’ to the world via the internet from Boarshurst Bandroom one Sunday evening. The programme featured sixteen works performed equally, either side of a short interval. Once again at absolute full strength without a single dep or ringer in sight, the Eagley concert conducted by MD Chris Wormald was a huge success and attracted wonderful compliments on social media from as far away and apart as Canada and New Zealand with regard to the performance, the arrangements and pieces chosen and the musicianship of the band.

The sixteen works which were broadcast ‘live’ and which have been captured individually on multi-camera video are; O.R.B., Amazing Grace, Guess I’ll Hang My Tears Out To Dry (Cornet Soloist – Lynsey Hayes), Birdland, Appalachian Mountain Folk Song Suite, Portrait of My Love (Euphonium Soloist – Caitlyn Stranks), Knight Templar, Forty Second Street, Bohemian Rhapsody, The President, Saving All My Love For You (Flugel Horn Soloist – Janet Walsh), Tom And Jerry, Heart of Courage, Mr Blue Sky, Moonlight Serenade and Mahler’s Resurrection. Over the next eight weeks, we are going to be uploading a new video every few days to our Facebook page, so that two of the videos can be seen each and every week. Please enjoy our current 2020 band in ‘live’ concert! All of the pieces performed are published, either by their original publisher or by Obrasso (Switzerland) but every arrangement performed on the videos is published and available from all established brass band music retailers.

Traditional brass band concerts usually start with a march, so as not to break with tradition here is our concert opener the march ORB.

Good evening and welcome to Sunday Brass at Boarshurst Band Club – this evening we have MD Christopher Wormald and 2nd Section #eagleyband at the club. Established in 1850 the band have seen success on the contesting stage and in the concert hall.
