Brass Bonanza

On Monday 27th June, young brass players from all over Bath and North East Somerset headed towards St Michaels Junior School in Bath for a day of Brass music making. The day is run by the B&NES Music Hub, and has been happening for over 35 years. The day is led by experienced staff from the Music Hub, and the pupils rehearsed music in preparation for a short concert for parents in the afternoon. This was followed by the annual Brass Bonanza in the evening. This event shows off the standard of brass teaching happening in the authority and combines the children who took part during the day, with Brass Tacks (the Music Hub Brass Band) and the Intermediate Brass Group from the Saturday morning Music Centre. 80 pupils took part in the evening concert which was at Ralph Allen School.
