FOR THE NEW YEAR
WARBLETON BRASS BAND & THE SOUTH DOWNS SINGERS
Saturday 9th December, we were privileged to play alongside The SOUTH DOWNS SINGERS, to a packed audience at St Saviours Church, Eastbourne. A big thank you to Sian and Louise for their amazing program. This joint Christmas Concert was a remarkable mix of traditional and more contemporary music. We raised the roof with Prismatic Light then added the more modern Disney movie theme as the festive season embraces the old and new.
That said we included that well known carol Jingle Bells but with a brass band twist. The band joined with the choir for the final piece of the concert White Christmas, I'm sure everyone left the concert in a very festive mood.
OUR CHRISTMAS CONCERT
This year's Christmas Concert was a great success and with an exceptional turnout it was standing room only.......we will do our best to avoid this situation in the future. As an opening piece Prismatic Light certainly grabbed everyone's attention....and probably most of Rushlake Green. We must have done something right as the second piece was aptly titled "The Happy Bandleader".
The band is very fortunate to have a successful training band with members of all ages and abilities. Following our break when everyone enjoyed complimentary mince pies, tea or coffee, they treated us to a fantastic performance of the music they have been working on.
The second half was all about Christmas with everything from Mistletoe & Wine to Jingle Bells, we even played some traditional carols to allow audience participation.
Over the Christmas period each year we raise money for a good cause this year the band members voted for The Teenage Cancer Trust. The Christmas Concert is the first to raise money for this worthy cause.
As you will all be aware we don't charge for entry to our Christmas concert we only make a retiring collection, this way the audience have an opportunity to show their appreciation when they leave and we thank everyone for their kind generosity.
Rushlake Green is home to the Warbleton Brass Band
Just a stone's throw from Heathfield in the heart of Warbleton Parish in East Sussex.
The band perform a wide variety of music from the traditional through to present day favourites. Whether it be from a musical, film, classical and light popular, the band aim to entertain wherever they play.
Warbleton Brass Band has evolved into a modern forward thinking brass band, attracting members from all ages and abilities, but still ensuring they keep some of that wonderful traditional feel with smart uniform, regular events and of course supporting the local community.
Even if you have little or no experience of playing a brass instrument, you are welcome to join our successful training band where instruments and tuition are provided for free. All we ask in return is a bit of home practice and the desire to eventually be part of the main band. We are always looking for new players to join us and become part of the band's bright future.
Meeting every Friday at 7.45pm in Dunn Village Hall, Rushlake Green,TN21 9QE. Come along for a listen and see what you think or alternatively contact our Secretary for more details about this popular hardworking, but fun brass band.
Every Friday is an open rehearsal when anyone is more than welcome to come along to listen or indeed think about joining.
Did you use to play many years ago? Always fancied having a go on a brass instrument?
Want a hobby for your children? Just decided to take up a challenge? We have instruments, tuition, uniforms and music, all you need is the enthusiasm to give it a go, what have you got to lose? Come along at 7pm to chat with the MD or speak to a committee member, perhaps arrange to try an instrument. 7.15pm is the training band, come and listen to how we encourage players of all ages and standards to improve and play as an ensemble. The main band is at 7.45pm, we then let the training band members sit in for the first 15 minutes to get a feel for the big band and to play alongside more experienced players. 8pm we knuckle down with some hard work, a few laughs, maybe even a few groans but most of all we have nearly two hours of music making with friends. What could be better?
Most summer engagements allow for the band to relax and enjoy what the venue has to offer. 2016 saw the resurgence of the men v women competition involving many of the traditional Fete games? We also enjoy other social events such as the band BBQ where everyone can enjoy the food, drink and the many games that are devised and refined as the evening progresses.
