Workshop concert to showcase Island talent

There’s a chance to hear some of the Island’s leading young brass and percussion players at a special concert on Sunday afternoon.

It's the culmination of a weekend workshop, led by two prominent names in brass bands, conductors and composers Richard Evans and Alan Fernie.

It's been funded by The Lord Cockfield Trust, set up by the late Lord Cockfield – Minister of State at the Treasury in Margaret Thatcher’s government and a former Isle of Man resident - who died in 2007 at the age of 92.

MLC Eddie Lowey was a friend for many years of both Lord Cockfield and his wife Monica and says they considered the Isle of Man home.

The concert at St. Ninian’s High School sports hall in Douglas starts at 2pm.
