The concert opens with Paul Lovatt-Cooper’s Enter the Galaxies and also includes John Williams’ film music for Superman and Cowboy’s Overture. You’ll also hear a fantastic arrangement of Queens’ classic rock song Bohemian Rhapsody Herb Alpert favorite, Zorba’s Dance,, and cornet trio, Three Jolly Sailormen with Ken Walter, Dave Adams, and Laura Shea-Clark on cornet. The major work on the program is Labour and Love by Percy Fletcher, a brass band classic which musically depicts man’s struggle to find meaning in his work.
