It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Her Majesty the Queen.
On behalf of Phoenix Brass, the players and members of Friends of Phoenix, we send out our heartfelt condolences and prayers to all the members of the Royal Family and Royal Household. Her Majesty was a great servant to so many, including many charities and voluntary organisations.
Phoenix Brass had great pleasure of performing in front of Her Majesty the Queen in October 1996, just three years after our formation, during her visit to Newbury including the then named Newbury Mencap Centre. We will always remember that honour to be asked to play during her visit.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with all the Royal Family who will greatly miss her loyalty and dedication.
