    PHASE TWO EXPANSION

    Since the formation in July 2007 of the Ouston.Pelton & District Community Brass Band we now have over 90 eager youngsters who regularly rehearse in seven school bands during out of hours and on a Saturday morning in a community centre.

    They use new brass and a full set of percussion instruments, have uniforms, stands, a wide range of music, and a lot of support from parents, teachers and the local community in general.

    Already these children have made a notable impact on the local banding scane and are thirsting with ambition.
    Already 1st. 2nd.and 3rd prizes have been awarded in Solo, Duet, Quartet and other contests.

    Several top flight musicians from the brass band world have given a series of demonstration days, and the children have attended concerts by high profile brass players as part or our plan to fuel their growth even further.

    The band concerts are well attended and it is rewarding to see their excitement and total commitment as they improve.

    We are now desperately seeking several experienced players, who have possibly now retired from banding, to sit in with these youngsters to encourage, give advice, demonstrate techniques and styles, and to teach by example.

    The North East has produced many soloists for our top bands over the years and our objective is ensure that this continues.

    All applicants will require CRB clearance and should contact Norman Walker as follows.
