DUAL – trumpeters Dan Newell and Andy Crowley with members of the Orchestra of Wexford Festival Opera.


Following the audience’s vociferous and enthusiastic reaction to their concert of film music during last year’s Festival,  Dan Newell (principal trumpet, WFO Orchestra) and Andy Crowley, one of Britain’s leading trumpet soloists (together known as DUAL) are joined by members of the WFO Orchestra in another uplifting concert of film music, presented in DUAL’s lively and engaging style.
Their programme includes music from several well-loved and popular films, including  Gladiator, JFK, Skyfall, Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan.

He has played for film music recordings for over ten years, including Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Shrek, Hugo and The Hobbit. He has recently released his second book in a series of children’s books about Billy and his band of young musicians: Billy’s Band – The Jewel Thief. The Billy’s Band books are fun stories which come with a CD of musical activities. They are on sale in Wexford.

Foremost a classical graduate of the Royal Academy of Music in London, he has recorded and performed as a soloist internationally with the English Chamber Orchestra and London Chamber Orchestra, featuring in the concerti of Purcell, J Haydn, M Haydn, JS Bach, Hummel, Jolivet and Shostakovich.
