There was definitely something in the air last night!
Many thanks to our good friends Boarshurst Silver Band for inviting us to take part in their Sunday Brass series and for being such fantastic hosts. We had 33 talented young musicians putting on a show last night (plus two fantastic deps) and what a great show it was. For five of the band, this concert will be even more memorable than most as it was their first one since moving up from our Training Band. Congratulations and well done to Hendrix, Peter, Josh, Sophie and George, you were absolutely awesome.
