8th January 2019
Denton Brass are delighted to
announce that, as of January 2019, our Training Band and main band will
once again be rehearsing under the same roof!
We have already run a successful
training band for a number of years – in fact no less than six current
Denton players started out in our own learners group.
Not just a junior band (although of course youngsters are
actively encouraged to, come along and have a go!), Denton Brass Training
Band is open to everyone. Children, adults (we have members who only
started playing in their fifties or sixties), total beginners and people
returning to banding after an extended break – all are welcome.
From the 10th of January, Training Band rehearsals will
take place on Thursday evenings at 7pm, immediately before the ‘main
band’ rehearsal. We are happy to report that we have retained the
services of Matthew Gee as Training Band MD, and he will be working
closely with Denton Brass MD Robert Yates to secure the future of the
band for years to come.
Denton Brass rehearsals take place at
Denton West End WMC on Grosvenor Street in Denton (Greater Manchester,
postcode M34 3WN). Training Band on Thursday from 7pm, main band Monday
and Thursday 7:45pm to 9:45pm.

he was awarded the prestigious Roy Newsome Conducting Prize.
The band have been rehearsing with
Robert for several weeks and have enjoyed working with him so much that
we recently invited him to become our official MD. We are very pleased
that he accepted the offer and are confident that he has the qualities
needed to motivate and challenge the band going forward.
