Watkins Brass inspired by the very best

Children from Watkins Brass welcomed the opportunity to listen to the world-famous Tredegar Band at an event hosted by the Reading Spring Gardens Brass Band on the evening of Friday 11th October in an open rehearsal.

The rehearsal saw the Tredegar Band make their final preparations on Hermann Pallhuber’s test piece, ‘Titan’s Progress’ ahead of their appearance the following day at the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain held in London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Throughout the rehearsal the children engaged with the band with thanks to Musical Director Ian Porthouse and left motivated and inspired to do more home practice – time will tell !
