Meymandi Concert Hall at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, 2 East South Street, Raleigh, NC 27601-2337
The Cory Band, under the direction of Philip Harper, from Wales, England, is the top-ranked British-style brass band in the world. They are the current British National Champions, European Champions, Brass in Concert Champions and are back-to-back winners of the British Open Championship in 2018 and 2019. They made a North American tour three years ago and played to sold-out houses in six cities. They are exceptional musicians and remarkable ambassadors for the tradition of brass banding.
The Cory Band’s appearance in Raleigh is sponsored by the Triangle Brass Band, one of several groups in North Carolina which uphold the traditions of this musical idiom. The concert features several of their award-winning soloists in a program of Cory Band blockbusters, and music honoring Shakespeare’s immortal story of Romeo and Juliet.
Adults $20; Students/Seniors $15
