School’s back and so are we!

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!
