                        The Mill Creek Colliery Band is pleased to host the 2012 Prairie Brass Band Festival in Edmonton on April 27-28. This event comes to Edmonton only about once per decade. The Festival provides an opportunity every two years for brass bands throughout the Prairie Provinces (and sometimes beyond) to come together to celebrate and share their love of this genre of music. At least five British-style brass bands from Edmonton, Saskatoon and Regina will participate in 2012.

                        The Festival culminates in a Gala Concert that will take place on Saturday, April 28th, 7:00pm, at All Saints' Anglican Cathedral (10035-103 Street, Edmonton). The concert will feature performances by each individual band as well as by a massed band of more than 100 musicians. The special guest conductor for the event is the renowned American brass band conductor and composer, William Gordon.

                        The programme will include a wide assortment of music including rousing marches, familiar classical music, favourites from the stage and screen, traditional folk music and reflective spiritual music based on well-known hymns.
