Composed by Ervin Drake, this best-selling hit for Frank Sinatra (and later, Robbie Williams) tells of the performer’s life as they reflect upon their past, aged 17 to being ‘In the autumn of their years’. Now, arranged for the first time for brass band to perform with either a single soloist, or for added entertainment value, you can spread the years across various (aging?!) members of the band as several soloist parts are provided (both in Bb and Eb). This piece is a must have for bands looking to add something different to any concert or contest programme. *Also works with vocalist.
Les Misérables has been entertaining thousands of people the world over since its premiere in Paris in 1980. With a hit soundtrack of memorable songs, Empty Chairs at Empty tables is one of the more reflective works from the musical. Like many other titles from the musical, works extremely well for Brass Band. A great addition to any concert programme and a sure hit with audiences across the globe.
