It’s been two years since I have been able to contribute to this blog, but I’ve had a good excuse: I published two books, about which I’ll write more soon. In the meantime, here are all of the videos from a concert presented by Newberry’s Victorian Cornet Band on July 12, 2014 after we recorded our first CD, which will be released soon (pending funding for post-production). The videos are posted in concert order; a copy of the concert program listing all of the repertoire and band members (on the second page) is available here: NVCB Concert Program 7-12-14. Enjoy!
