During Lockdown the band members were engaged with some online collaboration recording projects which you can listen to below. Also band members have been sharing their Lock Down experiences and their musical backgrounds through the You and Your Instrument questionnaire. You can see the results by following this link:
The “Dance No. 4” Project
The band have released a recording, created through online collaboration during lock down, of them performing Dance No. 4 from Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances.
The performance is dedicated to the memory of David Mansfield, long serving Tuba Player and Treasurer to the band who was taken from us too early. He will be very missed.
