As lockdown continues so does our “virtual virtuosity” as, thanks to stalwart contributors Andrew Kilner, Phil Cleave, Dave Phillips, Chris Neary, Jenny Hughes, Andy Cory & Kim Paynter, our biggest challenge to date Mancini Magic is added to our Virtually Brass player.
No not a bizarre “Carry On Film” although some of our sessions are good for a laugh or two. Our latest effort is the Floral Dance that’s been added to our “Virtually Brass” playlist. We thank all the stalwart contributors Dave Phillips, Andrew Kilner, Jenny Hughes, Chris Neary, Andy Cory and Sarah Neary for their recordings and hope a few more can join in and have go with our next challenging piece – the big band medley “Mancini Magic”.
Whilst the government have now allowed Brass Bands to practice outside adopting Social Distancing we have elected not to meet yet as a number of our players are still isolating and we can currently achieve best practice success through our virtual sessions.
A big part of our Monday and Thursday Online sessions is selecting a particular piece to practice at home and submit a recording of our own part to be mixed into a band virtual Concert – see the link on right side of home page as well as a link form the scrolling banner. We hope to keep these up dated with new pieces from our stalwart contributors.
