The Midsomer Norton and Radstock Silver Band have started a beginners’ band for children who may never have previously had the opportunity to get involved in playing music. The band encourages youngsters to have a go at whichever brass instrument they choose and the children are really enthusiastic as you can see from the happy faces!
Jemima’s gift will be providing 25 music stands to help to get them started, along with the gift of Jemima’s chosen instrument – a brand new euphonium! This will be known as “Jemima’s Euphonium” in memory of Jemima.
The band has also kindly agreed to play for us at a future fund-raising event which would be a fantastic treat. Have a look at their website to see what they get up to.
