Annual Concert 2012 – Featuring Phillip McCann


UNISON Kinneil Band will hold its Annual Concert on Friday 13th April in Bo’ness Town Hall at 7:30pm. Our very special guest for the evening will be the world famous cornet soloist Phillip McCann.

Phillip McCann is renowned all over the world for his unique style and tone quality and his acclaimed series of CD’s on the Chandos label – The World’s Most Beautiful Melodies – is universally admired; they are featured regularly on BBC Radio, Television and Classic FM. His mastery of the cornet has attracted composers with orchestrations  for film and TV soundtracks such as “Anna of the Five Towns”, “Woman of Substance” and “Hetty Wainthropp Investigates” – the latter receiving an Ivor Novello Award for Best Music Commission. Bo’ness born and bred, Phillip first learned to play in Kinneil Band before heading south to occupy the principal cornet position in famous bands such as Fairy Aviation and Black Dyke Mills– it is great to welcome Phillip back home to perform at our Annual Concert this year.

UNISON Kinneil Band is also delighted to feature its immensely successful Kinneil Youth Band, who will perform a series of pieces on the evening. The Youth Band has continued to grow over the year – gaining a Gold Award at their first ever competition and a Silver Award at the Scottish Youth Brass Band Championships. The youngsters always delight the audience with their musical performances.

Tickets costing £8 (£6 concessions) are available from Lyons Hardware (South Street, Bo’ness), from any band member or by calling Brian Holmes on 01506 822388. We advise you purchase your tickets as early as possible as demand is expected to be extremely high.
