THE award-winning Newstead Brass is set to unveil some of the new pieces for its summer programme at a concert this month.

The band will be reprising some old favourites - along with a few surprises - when they perform another of their popular Sunday Night Brass concerts at Newstead Centre on 28th April at 8pm.

A spokesman for the band said: “Newstead Brass are known for the musical variety in their programmes and this Sunday Night Brass concert will include some of the new pieces for our summer concerts across the East Midlands.

“Many of our soloists have chosen new pieces and we’re working on music that is fun while extending the traditional sound of brass.

“As the costs of running one of the area’s leading bands continues to rise, we need as many people as possible, including anyone interested in sponsoring the band’s activities, to come along and support our concerts.

“This event will help us meet the costs of competing in the British Open Brass Band Championships next month.”

Newstead Centre is on Tilford Road and admission to the event is £3.
