Here’s a little task to keep you occupied for a couple of days. BB has been approached by Roger Thorne who has been invited to take charge of the Brass Quintet Summer School that takes place on Monday at tMP Towers. However, this is a Brass Summer School with a difference – in that the 5 participants are all string instrumentalists keen to learn the finer art of brass playing! To introduce them to the world of Brass Bands, Mr. Thorne thought it would be a great idea to give them all a suitcase containing 26 items each beginning with the different letters of the alphabet - a to z! So housemates, BB would like you each to fill a suitcase with 26 different items each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet. Each item must have a link to brass banding – and this link must be clearly described when naming each item. Each housemate must not choose more than 3 pieces of music or more than 2 instrument names/types or the names of more than 2 people. Housemates aren’t allowed to choose an item that has been used by another housemate – there must be no duplication. So, by 10pm on Sunday night, BB expects each housemate to leave their ‘suitcases’ in this thread – otherwise the task will be failed! Housemates will also fail the task should any of the above rules be ignored. Thanks, and good luck! BB. PS. Please try and pass this task – we have a room full of rewards waiting to be used!
