Phoenix Brass is back!
The Covid pandemic has had a major impact on Phoenix Brass. Life for the Band ended abruptly in March 2020, after all engagements for the remainder of that year and were cancelled by the organisers, and 2021 to date has been no different.
The players have missed all concert, contest, committee meeting activities and supporting events charitable work and playing at the many carol services and events during the Festive period. These engagements and the twice weekly rehearsals on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Froxfield War Memorial Hall had been a big part of the player’s lives prior to the pandemic.
As some normality to life returns, players have turned to twice weekly rehearsals and are now preparing to play during the festive period at both private and public events. Come and listen to Phoenix Brass perform at the following upcoming public events:
Saturday, 11 December 2021 – Street Collection with Carols and Seasonal Tunes, Marlborough High Street, 10am
Thursday, 16 December 2021 – Brass and carols at The Tipple Inn, Collingbourne Ducis, 7.30pm
Saturday, 18 December 2021 – Street Collection with Carols and Seasonal Tunes, Marlborough High Street, 10am
Tuesday, 21 December 2021 – Carols around Christmas Tree at Froxfield War Memorial Hall, 7.15pm
