Congratulations to all the young players from our St Austell Youth and Senior Band who performed in the CYWO concert at Truro Cathedral!
It's 50 years since St Austell Band Club was founded and on Sunday the band performed a concert as part of the weekend's celebrations. Lifetime membership was awarded to Margaret Minear, Clive Fewins and Denis Chapman in recognition of their dedication to the club over the years. Garry Lannie led the band in a varied programme that the club members really enjoyed. There were conducting cameos from Derek Greenwood, who directed the band in "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" and Kevin Ackford conducted the premier of his new work, "Brass in the Bay".
The St Austell Band Quintet played for the Grand Opening of the newly refurbished bandstand in Truro Road Park on Sunday. The event was organised to coincide with the annual fun day so the park was full of people. Hopefully the bandstand can be used for more events in the future.
Here are a few members of St Austell Youth Band with Deputy Mayor Richard Pears after one of their concerts in the town centre. The band was delighted to be awarded £250 by the Town Council towards the purchase of some new jackets. Thanks to St Austell Town Council all our members will be able to have jackets that fit!
2020 has been a difficult year. With nearly all of our performances having been cancelled due to the pandemic we've had very little income but still have annual expenses such as insurance to pay.
The "Save Our Brass Bands" campaign has enabled us to set up a Crowdfunder page where there are lots of lovely rewards you can claim when you donate!
This is just what the band needs to get performing again and to continue providing education for our young musicians and entertainment for our local community.
