March 2010

On 17th March the band gave a joint concert with the newly formed MK Youth Brass in the splendour of the Chrysalis Theatre, playing some music which were favourites of Simon Palmer, as a tribute to a very much missed Stantonbury Brass player who died tragically at the end of 2008 aged 31. Proceeds from the concert went to the RSPB as Simon was an ecologist and fanatical bird-watcher.

At the London & Southern Counties Area Contest at Stevenage on 21st March, the band played “Kingdom of Dragons” by Philip Harper, and came a respectable 8th out of 17 bands to now establish itself competively in the 2nd section.
