Abbey Brass had a great end to 2018, with all members of the organisation out over Christmas raising much needed funds for the band so we can continue to offer music tuition to the people of Abingdon and surrounding villages. We have also raised some more money to our huge fundraising project for our new bandroom.
Many thanks to everyone who kindly put some money in our buckets and tins, it is very much appreciated.
On Saturday, Abbey Brass had their Annual Concert and Awards. The concert was a great success and with both the training band and the main band performing the evening was great entertainment for the packed audience.
As part of the evening the main band awarded their player of the year and this years recipient is Esther Villiers, Esther has only been playing Cornet for 5 years and has progressed through the band and is now in the Solo Cornet team.
Hard work and commitment has been the norm for Esther and she has put so much work into her playing that she is very deserving of this years award.
Congratulations to the bands on their performances and to Esther.
