Both bands will deliver its own programme before joining together in Breezin’ Down Broadway, followed by a new Dorothy Gates’ cornet feature and ending with finale Sine as the Light - written for New York Staff Band by Peter Graham, Black Dyke Band’s creative chair who will compose the finale.

He said: “Having had the privilege of an association over the years with both of these great ensembles it is a personal thrill to take part in what I am sure will be a wonderful evening of music making.”
