Steven Mead needs no introduction to brass enthusiasts around the world as his playing and teaching have become known to virtually all who have a love for the instrument known as the euphonium.
As a soloist his career as a professional solo performer continues to break new ground. With over 75 solo performances a year his relentless schedule sees him touring almost constantly. This remarkable solo career followed on from the successes he achieved as a member of several of the UK’s leading brass bands. Nowadays he travels constantly and performs regularly with some of the finest brass, wind and symphonic ensembles in the world.
Members of the Band together with Stowe School brass students will enjoy an afternoon workshop with Steven during which we will work on some challenging new repertoire as well as putting the final touches to the programme ahead of the evening concert. This workshop offers a fantastic opportunity for us all to draw upon Steven’s wealth of experience and talent.
During the concert Steven will perform a number of solo items, accompanied by the Band which has a former pupil of his, Micah Parsons at the helm. This concert is a rare opportunity to enjoy his virtuosic talent in this country and the Band are delighted and privileged to have the opportunity to perform with him.
