Impressive Brass Success
On Saturday 23 June, Caterham Senior Brass Ensemble joined forces with the principal brass musicians from the London Mozart Players and the Croydon Citadel Band to headline the first Festival of Peace (Croydon) with a beautiful and inclusive anthem as its centrepiece.
Caterham Senior Brass Ensemble were the only school ensemble invited to perform the anthem at the Festival’s community day in Park Hill, and performed as well as anyone on the stage.
The anthem and the Peace Festival were about core values and the sort of community we should all want to live in. The Caterham School Brass Ensemble closed the festival with poignancy and emotion.
We have received a complimentary message from the Executive Director of the London Mozart Players: “It was such a pleasure to welcome Caterham school brass players to swell the ranks of the LMP brass and the Croydon Citadel Band for the final event of the first Croydon Peace Festival in a performance of the newly commissioned Anthem for Peace It was a particular pleasure to see so many female brass players! LMP looks forward to possible collaborations with the school in the future, well done Caterham Brass.” Julia Desbruslais, Executive Director.
The members of the Senior Brass Ensemble have had an amazingly successful year together – from reaching the semi-finals of the Pro Corda International Music Festival to opening our prestigious London concert. Playing with members of the London Mozart Players was a fitting finale to an outstanding year.Back to all news
