Pick up your trumpet, join our band
EVER fancied playing in a band, but never had the confidence?
The Lakeside Concert Band could be just the vehicle for you.
Its musicians – grade 3 and up – rehearse at Lakeside Primary School in Cheltenham.
"We'd like you to think about getting that old instrument – saxophone, clarinet trumpet etc – out of the loft and dusting it off," said spokesman John Moore.
"Maybe you have an instrument and have been practising at home. Why not drop in?
"Many of the players have no formal training and are new to playing in a band.
"Others haven't played for years and have joined to get back into playing."
Budding musicians are invited to play alongside members for a fortnight, then, if they decide to stay, there's a £120 annual joining fee.
