Ian’s Update August 2014

Many thanks to those who supported the concert at ‘The Space’  – audience numbers were not as high as we would have wished for but I know everyone who came had an enjoyable evening.

The Band has also played it’s first concert at Kelling Heath Leisure Park with some members making a weekend of it with tents and caravans!  We have already been booked again for next summer.

Many of you will see both the Band and Training Band performing in the local area and look forward to your support.  Particular dates of interest may be:

Eaton Park – 3pm – Sunday 10th August

South Walsham Village Hall – Sat 6th September

Thetford Carnegie Rooms – Sat 27th September

Taverham Village Hall – 17th & 18th October – 40th Birthday Concert!

Congratulations to Jake Lay (Drums) and Josh Davis (Tenor Horn) who have both recently gained their Grade 8 Music exams.

Learn Brass At School!

With the new school term in September this is the peak time for new children taking up brass lessons.  These are undertaken at Taverham High and Junior Schools and Drayton Junior School.  Taverham Band supports this learning with free instrument loan and also with financial support to the cost of lessons where this is appropriate.

For information please contact either the Head of Music at the schools or me directly.

Have a good summer!
