Currently, players from Phoenix Brass are preparing for their first Concert in over two years which is being staged to help the Ukraine humanitarian relief efforts. The event at Marlborough Town Hall on Sunday, 10 April 2022 commences at 2.30pm and all monies raised will go towards the relief work in Ukraine.
Marlborough Town Council has very kindly donated the free use of the Town Hall for the Concert.
David Watson, Musical Director, Phoenix Brass Band commented “When news broke about Russia’s invasion into the Ukraine and seeing the unfolding tragedy of events, players from Phoenix Brass decided at a recent band rehearsal that it would be a great opportunity to hold our first Concert to raise funds and donate all monies to aid the ongoing relief in Ukraine. The players understandably feel helpless as they witness in the news and on social media the atrocities that continue to unfold in Ukraine. As a brass band the players will do what they enjoy, to play music and express a message that is important to them. At the same time, we can highlight the problems in Ukraine and help raise funds for the Ukrainian people suffering from the ravages of war”.
The Concert will be ticket only. Tickets are free and available on a first come, first serve basis from band players or contacting David Watson direct on 01672 841315. Tickets can be set aside to collect at the door on the day of the Concert.
Light refreshments will be served and there will be a raffle. Doors will open at 2pm.
The retiring collection and all funds from the Concert, raffle draw and refreshments will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
Please do come and support Phoenix Brass and the Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal.
