It was a privilege for the Regent Hall Band (Bandmaster Stephen Hanover) to participate in the celebrations at the Fortnum and Mason store on Piccadilly on 1 March 2012.
The annual “Expressions” concert at Regent Hall is now in its 10th year. The brainchild of Bandmaster Steve Hanover, “Expressions: Creativity in Concert” is held on the Thursday night preceding the Championship Section of the National Brass Band Championships.
As in previous years, members of the International Staff Band (Bandmaster Dr. Stephen Cobb) donated to a worthy cause in lieu of exchanging Christmas cards. For 2010, the band supported ISB horn section member Steve Hanover’s Life of Lynda effort in support of leukemia research, commemorating his sister who died of this disease at an early age.
