10th place at the National Brass Band
Championship Finals 2022

The band recently competed at the National Finals held at the Royal
Albert Hall in October 2022.

This was a welcome return for the band after an absence of several
years and was the first appearance for MD, Chris Bearman at this
prestigious venue.

Taking on the role of Resident Conductor in May 2018 Chris lead the
band for concerts, and in January 2020 took on the challenging task to
lead the band at the Butlins Mineworkers Contest held at Skegness. The
band were awarded 3rd place overall and gained many plaudits for the
sound and presentation at this tough contest.

Chris was appointed as MD In 2021 with the band continuing to achieve
good contest results in the 2022 Area Contest that sent the band on to
the Albert Hall for the finals.

The band's 10th placing was a fabulous result in a strong field.

Festival of Wind and Brass -
The splendid Pamoja Hall at Sevenoaks School in Kent was the
venue for a spectacular concert lead by MD Jonathan Crowhurst.

The band took the stage for the second half of the concert that
included a performance of 'Seascapes' by Ray Steadman-Allen
which was the Test Piece for the 1988 National Finals at the Royal
Albert Hall and was the first time Redbridge Brass qualified the finals
conducted then by Graham Chambers. The band still has four
players who were in the band all those years ago!

The concert also featured the Maidstone Wind Symphony, and
special guest soloist
Matilda Lloyd.
Moonlight and Romance
A fantastic concert programme included Beethoven’s iconic Moonlight Sonata and Debussy’s Clair de Lune
played by guest soloist, concert pianist and teacher David Silkoff.   
David demonstrated his mastery on the piano creating beautiful cascades of sound, a rare opportunity to
hear these works performed in such style.

Talented violinist Chris Karwacinski, who also plays tuba for the band, showed his fine musicianship with
Massenet's Meditation and a splendid Tango by Gardel accompanied by the band.  With music from Rimsky
Korsacov’s Scheherzade, Wagner’s romantic opera Lohengrin and the beautiful Girl with the Flaxen Hair plus
more contemporary music like Michael Buble's Cry Me a River featuring Dave Wallace on trombone.
