Fairey supports Stockport youth
Fairey Band has renewed it musical partnership with Stockport Schools Senior and Intermediate bands.
Members of the Fairey Band helped tutor players from the Stockport Schools Senior and Intermediate Bands (SSBB), as they prepared for their recent appearances at the National Youth Championships of Great Britain.
The training day at Stockport Music Service marked a revival of a previous musical partnership between the organisations and it is hoped that it heralds further such collaborations.
Fairey flugel star, and former SSBB member, Lucy Cutt, said: "Everyone at Fairey is delighted to be involved in this event and to be able to give something back in this way. We also look forward to future collaborations in supporting the musical development of young players in our 'home' area of Stockport."
With support from Yamaha, the day saw full rehearsals conducted by course leader Mike Fowles, as well as sectional rehearsals led by the Fairey tutors, before the day concluded with a short concert.
Alice Bell, SSBB Administrator, also commented: "Our players had a great day under such super players and an inspirational MD. We are very proud to represent Stockport and to have renewed our links with such a wonderful band."
