Just after they had successfully defended their European title in Linz this year, The Cory band with conductor Robert Childs played at the Gala Concert. We hear original music by Philip Wilby, a Glenn Miller medley and the stunning tenor horn playing of Owen Farr in his own arrangement of the finale to one of Haydn's cello concerts. We also hear from the host Brass Band Oberosterreich who have confirmed their presence on the European scene with their best competition placing so far.
