LOCAL wind orchestra, Phoenix Concert Band, returns to St Margaret’s Church in Ilkley on Saturday, March 23, 2019, with a loud and lively evening of music to see off the winter and warm everyone up for spring.

The programme includes Danzon No.2, Moment for Morricone, showcase piece Libertadores, plus tunes from stage musical Wicked, Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis and a touch of Irving Berlin for good measure.
