The Concert Series Committee is excited to invite you to attend our next concert on Friday, May 3, at 7:30 PM. We will be welcoming THE LANCASTER BRITISH BRASS BAND to our sanctuary for this concert. This will be our 50th concert since the Applause… Memorable Music series started in 2000-2001, under the leadership of Nan Hoff. It has continued for all these years, presenting three quality concerts each season, always offered free-of-charge for the enjoyment of the St. Andrews family and the greater Lebanon community.
The Lancaster British Brass Band follows the path first laid down in the smoky mill and mining towns of mid-nineteenth century Britain. Gradually evolving into a fixed instrumentation of 28 players and one conductor, the brass band flourished under the sponsorship of mill and mine owners bent on “morale and spiritual uplift”, thus laying the groundwork for a later time when the Salvation Army began capitalizing on the success of the bands by establishing brass bands as part of their outreach through music.
For concert programs brass bands borrow from virtually every musical genre. A typical program consists of transcriptions of the classics, marches, hymns, popular music arrangements, solos, and finally, original compositions written for the medium. We hope everyone will come to hear this concert and enjoy some truly authentic brass band music.
Please join us on Friday, May 3, 7:30 PM.
If it is better for you to remain at home, the concert will be live-streamed.
