My name is Christopher Leon Johnston, I have been involved in Brass Bands all of my life as a Euphonium player / Soloist and Musical Director.
Brass Bands I have played with / conducted over the years include : GUS, Camborne Town, St Austell, St Keverne to name just a few.
By creating Plastic Brass, a group of musicians to help Disabled people in the UK, by raising money for a Disabled Charity.We had 35 players at our main 2017 event.
The chosen charity is Milton Keynes Centre for Integrated Living (MK CIL).
Disabled people across the UK need help, and are getting lost in our society!Join us for future events its all great fun!
We need Brass instrument players!
It was a great shame that Plastic Brass could not perform in 2018.
However I am planning and hoping for your support for 2019.
Once again all the profit will be going to the same charity as in 2017 MKcil a disabled charity!
Plans are in motion and this time we will be getting together once a month on Sunday evenings 7-9pm
The first planned rehearsal will be the 27th January, and thereafter the last Sunday in the month for 5-6 months until the actual event!
We also have the added bonus of a Guest Musical Director for the event Dr Rodney Newton.
I will take the initial rehearsals until Dr Rodney Newton comes along nearer the time of the event.
Rehearsals will be in Milton Keynes and subject to final confirmation these will be held at The John Lewis Magna Park 3 facility MK17 8AA.
This is being provided FREE OF CHARGE!
The date & time of the event is not yet in place, still organising this.
All you need to bring with you is your Instrument (Plastic / Brass your choice) & music stand.
I really hope I can get your support for 2019, it will be fun, and some great music to play, and raising money for charity at the same time.
Please Please Please help me to make the above possible.
