Lunchtime Concert: Mike Ford
Mike is New Zealand’s foremost exponent of the Tenor Horn.
He is the section principal of the National Band of New Zealand, a position he has held since 2007.
He is also currently the National Tenor Horn Solo Champion, a title he has won 15 times.
The program includes some well known melodies, and some less well known pieces especially transcribed or written for the Tenor horn.
The Tenor Horn is capable of lyrical beauty and flashy technical brilliance.
In this concert you will hear both of these things, so come along and enjoy listening to horn playing at its best!
Joined by Louis Lucas-Perry on Piano, and current New Zealand Baritone Horn Solo Champion Ross Gerritsen, Mike will present a programme that will leave you wanting for more.
