Colin Dye 2nd baritone horn, Reg Vardy Band
I've been a member of the Reg Vardy Band for over 40 years ... but last night in Durham Cathedral was one of the best and most moving concerts I've ever been part of. The musical style was quite difficult for the band to play. It was a departure from what we normally play. We're all amateurs and many of us are not even particularly well educated in music (including me), but to get to play some of the world's great music, directed by a top class conductor, alongside fantastic soloists was a privilege I wouldn't have missed!
Such an event obviously takes a tremendous amount of organisation, especially to achieve such a highly professional standard, and Lesley Ann must be congratulated for creating a superb evening.
