This Sunday we will be leading the Royal British Legion Holmes Chapel Remembrance Parade.
A date that we especially look forward to each year - this is our 34th consecutive parade in Holmes Chapel.
Before this we have a performance in Crewe Town on Saturday from 4 pm for the “When the lights go out” event come and remember with us this special weekend.
It’s Sarah Sparkles last rehearsal at Atlantic Brass this evening before we travel home over night. It’s been a great experience and I hope you will come to hear them live on Friday 16 November - Ruskin Road high school Crewe Cheshire
Currently we are having a great time in the US with Melanie Ball and Carl Ball of Atlantic brass. So hospitable with plenty of things to see and do. Next rehearsal is Thursday evening before we fly back on Friday - too soon it’s great here
Sarah Sparkles (Sparkes) our principal Cornet player is visiting the US this week to rehearse with Atlantic Brass ahead of their Scottish Open performance. Sarah’s very pleased to be stayIng with former banders of our very own Mel and Carl Ball.
(Sarah’s that good she even has her very own MD to carry her bags !!)
Yesterday afternoons concert with the Co operative Youth Wind bands was yet again a great success.
The organisation of the event was first class and the quality of young players was excellent - that is how to promote and inspire young players well done all.
TCTC Group Band enjoyed a repeat of our Austrian Best Bits and played brilliantly
Well done everyone involved
We will be performing at Nantwich Civic Hall this afternoon along with the Co-operative Youth Wind Bands. The concert will start at 14:30. Come down and have a listen, it promises to be a great afternoon.
As we wait to board the plane home I’d like to share this very important news.
Whilst enjoying the sun and the views up the mountain today we used the opportunity to award Andy Wood with a cheque.
The amount came from a joint concert with the sensational singers and the band a few months ago.
Andy very nearly didn’t come this weekend after a horrific year fighting and beating bowl cancer. We are all so please you made it and that you are back to your fit self again. You sir are a star that we are lucky to have.
