The group thoroughly enjoyed playing at Wharton Park in Durham today as part of the Summer Sunday Afternoon Brass concerts.
A Touch of Brass provided a seven piece ensemble to play at the wedding of Faye and Joe at St Leonard’s Church in Loftus today. It was a privilege to be a part of their special day, entertaining the guests as they arrived and playing in the church during the signing of the register.
On a lovely Summer’s day the ensemble entertained the visitors to the Annual Loftus Wool Fayre. There were over three hundred people attending the event with stalls run by local community groups and organisations.
A new brass offering for engagements – a quintet for a wedding, a ten piece for a summer concert or perhaps a quartet for a carol service.
A new repertoire. Music arranged especially for a brass ensemble with entertainment always in mind. Much of it written especially for A Touch of Brass.
The roots for A Touch of Brass are firmly within a traditional heartland of brass band heritage. All of the members of the ensemble come from this proud tradition and are keenly aware of the importance of both honouring it and keeping it alive.
