FYCB Local Tour

What a wonderful local tour it has been!

On Friday April 1st,  we played our first formal concert since 2018, with a crowd of real-life people(!) who flattered us with rapturous applause. We made two Australian premieres: Where She Sings Freely composed by Lucy Pankhurst and text by Clara Price, with Ramona Downie Berry jumping up from the horn section to be our Narrator. The second work was Flight by the band’s MD Louisa Trewartha. After the interval we heard three works from students of the Footscray-Yarraville City Percussion Academy, lead by MD Katie Thomas. We closed the evening with ‘Mid All the Traffic’ (see below). The evenings soloists included principal cornet Stuart McCorkelle, principal euphonium Peter Murnane, and the ever-entertaining Byron Crump.

The next morning we were up early to perform our second concert of the local tour outside of Alfa Bakehouse, Yarraville. Many folks put their morning plans on hold as they stopped to listen, while those at the cafe were pleasantly surprised by the free, high-quality performance. We’ll be back!
