End of Term Concert - Saturday 7th July 2012 - With Added ‘Fnugg’

On Saturday 7th July there will be a free concert at the Huntingdonshire Regional College starting at 19:30 given by some of the ensembles at the music school.

We also have a new feature - a spot for staff to strut their stuff. Taking the first spotlight is Robin Norman who teaches brass and directs the Senior Concert Band and the Senior Orchestra. Not being a wallflower - they don’t tend to suit tubas - Robin is playing ‘Fnug’ which demonstrates some of the many sounds a tuba is capable of including harmonics and beat-boxing. There is more information on this piece on YouTube.

All members of the public are welcome
