Bolsover Summer School

Four members from Beulah Brass travelled to Clowne, in Derbyshire, to take part in the Bolsover Brass Sumer School.  Some of the music was very challenging, and there was a lot to get through in a very short space of time. It was hard work, but we had a lot of fun, and the tutors were fantastic.

We played a couple of outside concerts at beautiful venues (and the weather was lovely).  The week ended on a high, with a final concert of the works we had studied , including a premiere of "Triumph of the Cross" by Steven Ponsford.  Our soloist was the great Joe Cook, tuba player extraordinaire, who played a couple of pieces specially written for him.

All in all an extremely enjoyable week.  Roll on 2017!!
