Blewbury Learner Band played at a concert on Saturday 2 March 2013, held at South Moreton School, alongside brass players learning with the Oxfordshire County Music Service.
A total of 26 players, including a handful of adult “helpers” from the Blewbury Brass Band, got their instruments out (trumpets, cornets, flugel horn, tenor horns, baritones, a euphonium, trombones and an Eb tuba) and played a selection of music some well-known and others composed especially for the event. Two members of Blewbury Learner Band played two duet pieces, on the Eb horn and Eb tuba.
The OCMS students were conducted by James Sinden, the county brass teacher, and the Blewbury Learner Band were conducted by Ian Barlow.
From the looks on their faces and from the volume of their clapping, the audience of more than 40 parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters and friends, enjoyed themselves enormously.
