Grimethorpe Colliery Band with Cantata Choir female voices, Canterbury Girls Chamber Choir and King's School Girls' Choir
Conductor: Frank Renton
The turning point in Grimethorpe's history was the appointment of Elgar Howarth as professional conductor and music adviser in 1972. Howarth's association with Grimethorpe was the inspiration behind the commissioning of new works by leading avant-garde composers of the time. Tonight we shall be listening to these ground-breaking Grimethorpe commissions, followed by Stephen Roberts' arrangement for brass band of Holst's majestic The Planets.
Harrison Birtwistle - Grimethorpe Aria
Joseph Horovitz - Euphonium Concerto with soloist Michael Dodd
John McCabe - Cloudcatcher Fells
Gustav Holst (arr. Stephen Roberts) - The Planets
