Kelvin’s outstanding brass musicians
On Monday 20th June, ten of Kelvin's outstanding brass musicians joined musicians from St. Mary's College and Marvell College in a workshop with the fabulous New York Brass Band. Students listened to the band perform some of the numbers that they were set to perform at the Glastonbury Music Festival then joined them to learn a couple of numbers, which included doing a few improvisations themselves!!
In the evening, students joined the band in an impromptu concert with great improvised solos from Sally Ann Saunders on Trombone and Albert Wilson on Trumpet. Mr Grantham, who accompanied the students to the workshop and the concert, said…
" I was amazed how quickly all the performers got to grips with this New Orleans style of music; they all did brilliantly"
