The Blastissimo Brass Ensemble


The advanced brass students meet two weeks before a concert to learn and rehearse repertoire.  The sixteen-piece ensemble is made up of trumpets, horns, trombones, tuba and percussionists.  They have a reputation for performing a lively, toe-tapping repertoire.

 

The Family Band


The Family Band was formed for those parents who wanted to dust off their old instruments and begin playing again.  We invite all instruments, all levels and all ages.  We keep the rehearsal very relaxed, so nobody feels under pressure.  The band have recently enjoyed repertoire such as Memory, Selections from Chicago, Everything I Do (I Do It For You) and The Impossible Dream.
