Tredegar will head to Amersham this weekend to continue to strengthen their links with an organisation that is providing them with musical inspiration.
Ian Porthouse and members of the band will lead a trio of workshops on Sunday morning (25th September starting at 10.30am) aimed at junior, youth and adult players, before joining forces for a special gala concert with the senior Amersham Band at 3.00pm.
Hosted at Berkhamsted School (HP4 3BG), the Junior Brass Workshop is aimed at players up to the age of 12 who are playing at Grade 1 to Grade 4 level.
The Youth Workshop is up to the age of 18 for players of Grade 5 standard and above whilst the Open Workshop is open to all ages of Grade 6 standard and above.
They all start at 10.30am and finish at 1.30pm with a public performance.
The afternoon concert takes place at Berkhamsted School Centenary Theatre at 3.00pm, where Tredegar will showcase repertoire that was featured in their recent critically acclaimed Late Night Proms appearance at the Royal Albert Hall.
