I would like to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who has supported Phoenix Brass band throughout the past year. The tireless work of members of the ‘Friends of Phoenix’, assisting behind the scenes and carrying out fund raising activities, and the commitment of everyone associated with the band.
Sadly, some of our supporters of the band have passed away this year and we will miss them. Our thoughts are with their families at this time of the year.
During 2018 the band has been pleased to support many organisations both in fund raising and giving enjoyment and pleasure. This has only been possible through the dedication and strong commitment of all the musicians who have travelled the large area our increased number of engagements have covered. I would like to thank them most sincerely for all their hard work in making another successful year for the Band.
I would also like to thank Marilyn Mason, Training Band Director, and all members of the Training Band, and their tutors, who meet regularly every Saturday morning to practice and the commitment of their parents in transporting these younger players to their rehearsals.
Last, but not least, may I express my thanks to all our audiences whose attendance and applause has encouraged us to greater achievement.
May I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
Musical Director, Phoenix Brass Band
