Two new pieces…two new members

It’s only three more rehearsals until our first open air concert on Marine Parade on Tuesday, 5th July. We are working on three programmes of music so that there will be a bit of variety for our regulars who turn up every week – bless them!

Last night we were working on Into the Future, the piece of music selected for Brassfest. Brassfest is a national event to promote brass bands and bands all over the country will be performing this piece over the weekend of 7th and 8th July. We will play it during our Sunday afternoon concert on Marine Parade on 8th July.

We also had a look at a new special arrangement of the hymn tune Manchester which is “dedicated to the victims of the Manchester Arena attack on 22nd May 2017 and to the people of Manchester for their spirit and courage”. We will be adding this lovely piece to our summer programme.

We’ve also had a real boost as Ellis, who joined us last week on cornet, brought a friend, Steve, with him last night and both will be joining us for our concerts this summer. We can’t believe our luck – two new cornet players – they are like gold dust in these parts!
