Back to School

Members of Downshire Brass played to a packed hall today at Newtownbreda High School as part of an on-going partnership between the Band and the School.  

Year 8 pupils, who have just joined the School, had the chance to hear a dectet from the Band performing pieces and demonstrating the fundamentals of brass instruments, acoustics and brass playing!  A large group of first years followed-up with a chance to try out instruments ranging from cornet to Eb bass and percussion.

Michael Alcorn said, "we are delighted to be working with pupils and staff in the School to extend the excellent work achieved last year by tutors from Downshire.  We anticipate that there  will be stiff competition for the brass places that are available this year on the programme!"
