'Making Music Fun in East Anglia'
Once again we had a most successful Christmas carolling season. We raised over £2000 we are donating the sum of £752.76 to each of the three local charities we supported this year! Thank you to all the players who shivered outside the supermarkets, to all the collectors who braved the cold, and to all the generous people who smiled as they dropped coins (and notes!) into our buckets.
You are invited to the Martlesham Brass Quiz Night on Saturday 5th February, 7pm at St Michael's Church Centre, Martlesham Heath. 'Nibbles' will be provided, bring your own drinks (alcohol permitted). Teams of no more than 6 people - £2 per ticket (under 11's free), tickets from 07802 868924. All proceeds from the evening to go towards the band's tour to Watchet, Somerset in April.
Make sure you put Saturday 26th February in your diaries - our main band is presenting 'Our President' - a concert of music chosen by Bill Bell who is our inspirational band president. Bill is 97 and has chosen a varied and exciting mixture of pieces to illustrate his lifelong love of music. Tickets are £2.50 (children 11 and under free) from either 07802 868924 or online from www.martleshambrass.co.uk The concert is at St Michael's Church, Martlesham Heath and starts at 7pm.
We shall be holding our AGM on Friday 4th March at 7.30pm also at St Michael's - everyone is invited to come along and find out what the bandleaders have planned for 2011!
Our band welcomes new players young and old, with or without experience. Our aim is to encourage anyone who feels they would like to play in a brass band to come and have a go! If you would like to join us, or if you already play or have previously played a brass instrument and feel that you would like to come along and meet us, please contact us via the website or use the contact details below.
