A group of brass players from the Notts and Derbyshire area formed together undertake yet another successful tour as Sherwood Brass. The band, consisting of players from nine different bands under the baton of Sharon Stansfield, set off for Cyprus for a series of four concerts in the Limmasol area. The band was honoured to be invited by the Coeur de Lion Lion’s club of Limassol to play in the ancient amphitheatre at Curium in a concert in support of the local cancer charity. An appreciative audience of over 500 people were treated to feast of light music in possibly the first “Last Night of the Proms” concert to be performed in an original Roman theatre! After two encores, the band was then treated by the Lions club to magnificent meal supplemented by suitable refreshments from the local brewery! Our second concert raised considerable funds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. This was another great event with an audience who knew how to party! Again, the band had to perform two encores and once more, they were treated to a wonderful meal with plenty of refreshments The band also took part in a music festival at a music school in Limassol, a feast of singing, dancing and brass, and finished its series of concerts in the hotel that had endured the band for the week: an event that was enjoyed by all! The entire band would like to thank the organisers of the trip, Geoff Hawley and Tracey Wardle, for a fine job, well done and look forward to many more trips abroad in the future.
