On Sunday May 27, the Sidney Concert Band is proud to feature a number of its members as soloists in its annual Spring concert: “SCB’s Got Talent!”
Seventy-six-year-old Jim Kingham has been playing wind instruments since his early teens - first on clarinet with his high school and university orchestras, and then throughout the 1960s on saxophone with a four-piece combo. In addition to playing alto sax with SCB for 15 years, Jim has played sax with the Swiftsure Big Band and the Saxophoria quintet.
Jill Galt is a special guest vocalist, who has been singing and performing professionally for over 30 years and is well-known to Victoria audiences. She continues to perform, record and provide vocal coaching to dedicated vocal students. Her styles range from Broadway to Classical, Pop to Jazz, Country and Rock. Jill will perform two jazz standards, "They Can't Take That Away" and "Blue Moon."
At 17, Ryan Kelly is the youngest member of the trumpet section but has been affiliated with SCB for several years through local air cadet and school bands. Ryan is currently in grade 12 at Parkland Secondary School, where he is first trumpet with the school’s bands.
Peter Gardner plays clarinet in the band and has for several years. The Spring concert will feature Peter's arrangement of "Nice n' Easy" specially arranged for the SCB.
In addition to these featured artists, the band will perform a wide range of musical styles from Mozart's "Overture to the Magic Flute" and the “March" from Holst's First Suite for Band to “Highlights from Camelot” and “Seventy-Six Trombones” from The Music Man.
