Comments on Anniversary Overture -

.....personally speaking, I think it s GREAT and just want we want! Something for both orchestra and audience to get their teeth into and enjoy. Thank you!

Richard Reakes, Royal Sutton Coldfield Orchestra.

The orchestra s 40th anniversary concert got off to a truly festive start with the Anniversary Overture composed for the occasion by Robert Ramskill. It s one of those jolly pieces of light music, once ubiquitous on British radio and television. Ramskill livens it up with a dash of jazz with licks for trumpet and clarinet the latter doffing its cap to Gershwin s Rhapsody in Blue both well taken, and with opportunities for every section of the orchestra to shine.

Norman Stinchcombe, Birmingham Post.

"What a great piece the Anniversary Overture is! It was a great delight to conduct it."
