Les Misérables has been entertaining thousands of people all over the world since its premiere in Paris in 1980. With a soundtrack of memorable songs, Empty Chairs at Empty Tables is one of the more reflective works from the musical. As Marius returns to the café alone, the sole survivor following the battle (other than Jean Valjean), he regrets and reminisces over the losss of his friends. This moving work, like many other titles from the musical, works extremely well for brass band. A great addition to any concert program and a sure hit with audiences across the globe.
