The brass groups start back during the second week of term (Sept 12th, 13th and 14th) with new starters at each School joining our returning members in years 5 and 6.
We’re planning to quickly work up 2 performance pieces in which the new starters can play a simple part, while the continuing children tackle a more complicated part. We have a new piece called “Join the Band” and the successful arrangement of “Rock Around the Clock” that we played last term.
We are planning to take a joint band to North Tyneside’s Got Talent at the Whitley Bay Playhouse (NE26 1LK) on Tuesday Oct 10th 6:30-8:30pm, and to take the children to take part in the Brass in Concert workshops at the Sage Gateshead (NE8 2JR) on Saturday 18th Nov 9am-3pm including a performance on the Concourse, and to showcase a joint band at the “Best of Brass” Concert at St John’s Church, Killingworth (NE12 6BL) on Saturday Nov 25th 7-9:30pm
We can’t wait to get started!
