'Winter' training day is a success

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 30 December 2020


Following the recent announcement about our successful application to Arts Council England for a three-year programme of events, the first funded session, a free 'Winter' training day was held on the 19th December. All 50 places were taken within 48 hours and included members from Hong Kong and Canada.

During the course of the day, delegates were treated to a variety of classes covering improvisation, composition, conducting and general practice / performance techniques led by our Principal players and Conducting team.

Feedback on the event has been fantastic and further online training days are being planned.

"It was absolutely brilliant, thank you so much.''  

"Thank you for organising and hosting the event - as a North American brass band member, these sessions were well worth getting up early for’’

"A really fantastic day. I really enjoyed all the sessions with something new to be learnt in every one!''

''I can’t wait to put the top tips in to action in my playing and also sharing them with our training band."

Thanks to Arts Council England and all the delegates for their support.
