Brass Band moves to Dunston
(15 July 2010) - The band now has it's own website - Check it out!
A friendly and fun youth brass band has recently moved to Dunston. The band held a recruitment day in September, and six more learners joined, but we still have room for more! The Band plays at a variety of events in the local area (including the Dunston Duck Race and Metheringham Fayre & Feast), and will be taking part in numerous Christmas activities during December. Several members of the band will be entering the Lincoln Music & Drama Festival in March 2008.
The band still needs more players, and is now in a position to open the membership to other youngsters in the area who are already learning to play a brass instrument, or wish to learn from scratch (age up to 18 years). Although essentially a youth band, if there are any adult players out there who would like to sit in and help to bring the youngsters on, please contact us.
The instruments we have in a brass band are:
cornets, flugels, tenor horns, baritones, euphoniums, trombones and basses
We will provide tuition, loan of an instrument and music; and the subs are £12/qtr.
The Band would also be interested to hear from any budding drummers or percussionists.
Practice times - Dunston Village Hall
Tuesday: tuition for beginners 6.30-7.15pm, band practice 7.15-8.15pm
Friday: tuition for intermediates 6-7pm, band practice 7-8pm, advanced group 8-9pm
