Maggie's update to Fairlop
Keep in Touch
Virus Update – 16 – 8th May 2021
With the Government restrictions continuing to lift we are preparing to resume full rehearsals in June. We have also started to make arrangements for concerts, and the final details of these are now being confirmed. You should look out for announcements about Brass on the Grass in August, Baking with Brass in October and our main autumn Concert at our new venue – Deaton Theatre, Forest School – in November. In addition, our Christmas programme is starting to take shape so, whilst we are not rehearsing, a lot of behind-the-scenes preparation is going on.
Our presence on social media has kept the Band in touch with so many former players and supporters, and it has been good to receive feedback on our Virtual Performances from as far away as Australia.
Our website and Social Media are now core elements of the Band's communication, and this continues to attract contacts from various people. The latest has seen two trombones being donated to the Band and we have been pleased to pass these on to one of our Band members, a teacher, who will use these to encourage a couple of new brass players. Old instruments are usually of good quality (that is why they have lasted so long) so if you know of any, we can always put them to good use.
Recently, we have been undertaking a review of our postal mailing list which costs us in excess of £100 to produce. When we send out our next Newsletter, by post, we will be asking people to contact us if they still want to receive this annual publication. If people can switch to e-mail this will help save valuable Band funds, but rest assured if you still need an annual paper copy, we will continue to send one to you.
Our Nimrod virtual performance has been very well received and I know many people are looking forward to Andy Carter's “behind the scenes” release, which will be available in the next few weeks.
Thank you to all of you who have supported us during these difficult times, and hopefully this time next month I can end these updates with confirmation that WE ARE BACK!!!
