Best Of Brass!

Following successful concerts with Fairey’s and Brighouse & Rastrick during the past year, London & Southern Counties Champion Band Friary Guildford is delighted to announce a joint concert with the Cory Band, at 3.00pm on Sunday 28th August at Holy Trinity Church, Guildford.

‘It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring the top band in the world to Guildford and for us to share the stage with them,’ enthused Friary Chairman, Nigel Stevens. Friary’s principal euphonium, Chris Straker, who played baritone with Cory for three years when Cory won a hat-trick of European titles, was equally excited at the prospect: ‘I was lucky enough to be invited back by Cory to join them for their tours of the USA and Sweden earlier this year, and am really looking forward to playing alongside their fantastic musicians once again, and welcoming them to Guildford.’

Tickets (£14; £12 concessions; £5 under 18’s) are available from Friary Guildford Band Secretary on 07974 804394 or, and from
