Cory Band has held the number one spot in the official brass band world rankings for 15 years uninterrupted, and today’s concert is a celebration of this ongoing achievement by the Welsh ensemble. In the grand venue of Oxford Town Hall, Cory performs a programme of major works for band as well as highlights from its recent concert repertoire.
In 2022 Cory successfully defended its European title, and will reprise its stunning performance of Saints Triumphant by Philip Wilby, which the judges described as ‘so complete – with delicacy and power, warmth and sonority’. A tribute to Ralph Vaughan Williams, the piece is based on the hymn tune For All the Saints.
To complete the programme Cory will dazzle and entertain you as only the band which has been the winner of the Brass in Concert Entertainment Contest for seven of the last nine years can do – be prepared to be moved, dazzled and left uplifted!
