The Beginners (Junior) Band played beautifully this afternoon at Saltburn bandstand. The weather was kind – the rain held off – and the audience enjoyed the well structured programme which was played with the youthful enthusiasm that has become the hallmark of this talented group of players.During the performance the band played the hymn Crimond in memory of Arthur Morrison who sadly passed away recently. Arthur was a true giant of the North East brass band world and was always supportive and encouraging of Marske Junior Band. He was dearly missed this afternoon.
The Junior Band is open to anyone who would like to learn to play a brass (or percussion) instrument, regardless of age! We play some wonderful and exciting music (arranged by our resident superstar composer Sue Merser) and have great fun together. Rehearsals are every Sunday evening at 6:00pm.
