An Evening with Steven Moore and Easington Colliery Brass band on Saturday 31st August 2019
Steven Moore has just completed his Music Degree with 1st Class Honours and receiving the award for best university performance. After studying with Dame Evelyn Glennie he will perform various solo works in the first half on Marimba. Works will vary from his interpretation of the Bach cello suite no.1 to contemporary solo works. Easington Colliery Band was founded in 1915. Players with band experience were encouraged by the management to come from the West of Durham to work at the colliery and play in the band. The band is now totally self-supporting and relies on the work put in by the band members at concerts throughout the year to raise the funds to keep the band alive. The band is still based in Easington Colliery in the old colliery pay office opposite the Memorial Gardens, which is on the site of the old colliery. The building is the last remaining evidence of the pit and funds from the concert will help much needed refurbishment work. After performing a range of repertoire Easington Brass Band will be joined by Steven Moore to perform Ney Rossauro’s Marimba Concerto
