Leyland’s Austrian Adventure Awaits

Innsbruck beckons for Leyland Band as its summer Austrian adventure awaits. The band will fly out to Munich for onward travel to Innsbruck on the 28th July and perform that evening at the Imperial Palace.

Conducted by Thomas Wyss, Leyland will present a two hour concert as part of the Innsbruck Promenade Concert Series. Following the band’s debut appearance in Innsbruck in 2015, we are delighted to have been invited to perform again in 2017. The program is built around themed sets taking in old England music, classical brass, brass on Broadway and Leyland at the movies.
