The Learner Band entertained shoppers outside the Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot today. We were joined by our friends from Dawkes Music who provided us with a selection of brass instruments for passers-by to ‘have a blow’ on. Ian Barlow, from Brass in Class, encouraged local youngsters and hopefully will have attracted some new members to the band.
The band were on top form and could be heard throughout the town centre! The weather was not great but we carried on regardless with a varied programme which eventually brought the sun out. We heard beautiful solos from Samuel and Jamie on cornet and a quartet of Emily, Rachel, Katie and Natalie who played Amazing Grace with style and feeling.
Thank you to all the players for their hard work and enthusiasm and to their parents for supporting.
