8th February, 2013 - February Newsletter

Annual General Meeting

The AGM will be held on 8th March at 7.30pm. Cakes and refreshments will be available! All are welcome and if you have some free time the committees are always looking for new volunteers to join them.

Fundraising Committee Members

As we approach the AGM it would be great to see some new faces on the fundraising committee. We meet about every 6 weeks and sit around my kitchen table drinking tea and coming up with fun ideas to keep the Martlesham brass family entertained throughout the year. We traditionally organise the summer fayre, quiz nights, alternative talents, the summer BBQ, Beetle drives, you can also find us making the tea and running the raffles at our events, volunteers are always welcome to help at any event but if you fancy coming up with the ideas and help with the planning please put your name forward by emailing me.
Many thanks Jayne

Quiz night

There is still time to join the quiz night which will be held on 9th February 2013, starting at 7.00pm. All are welcome. Please bring your own drinks but nibbles will be provided.

Owen Farr

Owen Farr began his involvement with brass music in Wales at the age of six when he joined the Pontypool Brass Band. Having played with the Tredegar Town Band and the Williams' Fairey Band, Owen now occupies the position of Solo Horn with the principality's leading brass band, Cory.
Owen has a busy schedule as both soloist and chamber musician. His performances have taken him throughout Europe and have been heard on S4C television, BBC Radio 2's Listen to the Band and the world's longest-running live music radio programme, Friday Night is Music Night. Owen is constantly raising awareness for the tenor horn; lyrical tone quality and stunning technical precision have become his trade mark.
