Music Links

Listening to the pieces we play can be a challenge - when we play, we can only hear our section, or the one behind us, so we don't get the full effect.

For many of the pieces we have played in the past few years, there are performances captured on YouTube which can give us an idea of the overall sound.  The following links highlight some of our most recent repertoire.
