Second concert with our Hamburg friends went very well on Thursday 26th July and we thank them for joining us this week. We wish them a safe trip home and hope they take back with them some happy memories of their first trip to Brixham.
We look forward to welcoming our friends the Posaunenchor St. Michaelis brass band from Hamburg who will be sharing our evening concerts on Monday 23rd and Thursday 26h July next week. The Michel Posaunenchor band will also be playing a free concert at All Saints Church 7.00 pm on Tuesday 24th July (see poster below).
The Michel Brass Ensemble is made up of amateurs of all ages. Many have been members for several decades. This year sees its 117th anniversary with Josef Thöne its musical director since 1995. Under his leadership the musicians have widened their repertoire as far as musical styles, genres and periods are concerned including classic, jazz, swing, folk and pop. They present themselves with enhanced musical aplomb and versatility. In recent years Josef has taken ‘his band’ on several concert tours abroad to Andalusia, Brazil and – now – also to England.
