And still we carry on (2023)
An upbeat and optimistic piece in three movements for concert band.
This piece was written for and with the Band of the Surrey Yeomanry, with the support of Making Music and Sound & Music, as part of the 2023 Adopt A Music Creator scheme. It is a tribute to to the way the Band of the Surrey Yeomanry have evolved in repertoire and practice since devolving from their original military background, and the importance of keeping community and leisure time bands alive, even when politicians and financiers fail to see their worth.
With upmost gratitude to Michael Withers and all the members of the Band, and Fraser Trainer.
