Regent Brass is launching a new ‘B’ band next month, to help to encourage brass players in the area, both young and old, to come along and enjoy playing in a friendly environment. After a great deal of discussion about ways to encourage brass playing within central London, we have decided there is a real opportunity to establish another band in the area to give young musicians from the local music services and adults a chance to be part of a friendly and inclusive organisation. Regent Brass itself started life as a youth band linked to the Brent Music Service, so this presents a great chance for us to provide an outlet once again for brass musicians young and old to get involved in playing in a local band without the pressures and commitment of heavy contesting. The aim will be for the band to perform regularly both with Regent Brass and independently, in addition to a light contest schedule. The band itself will rehearse once a week initially on Thursday evenings from 7pm in the Church of the Ascension, Wembley HA9 9QL.
