It is that time of the year, and already the band is well into the start of its Christmas carolling. As usual, we are very busy, and some people, unfortunately, were unable to book us this year. We are playing at closed functions every Monday, Tuesday and Fridays, however, we will be out and about in December so check our gig guide to see where we are!
The annual awards for Torbay Brass Band were awarded for 2018. Band person of the year went to Alison Sweet, the Douglas John Mills Memorial Trophy went to Tamsyn Pearce. Also, youngsters from the Academy received their annual awards.
Despite repeated adverts through the door, on our Facebook page (over 2500 views), Twitter and our website, we are still short of some players. We have had four new players join since the beginning of the year, however, we could do with front row cornets and trombones to fill our ranks. Other players are welcome to get in touch, unlike some bands who are able to turn players away due to having a full complement and no instruments, we like to talk and see what you can bring to our family. Interested? 07901647901 for a chat with the chairman in confidence!
Well after the busy Christmas period we will shortly be restarting our rehearsals. As we start back we are looking for players to come and join our friendly band. We work hard but we also have fun. Our Academy group is progressing well but we really do need players who can join the main band now. For more information visit our vacancies page on this site!
