Cory Band Musical Director Philip Harper commented: “What we have overwhelmingly found from our previous virtual brass days is that people want the chance to play. So we hope this timetable gives exactly that – an opportunity to blow out the covid cobwebs and get stuck into some intensive rehearsal of some joyful, uplifting music led by some of the finest in the brass band business. So if you want to give someone the ultimate brass band Christmas present, or you yourself want a New Year motivational kick-start for your playing, sign up now!”

The day will be delivered on the Zoom platform and all instructions will be provided.
