Netherlands - Day 4 (final)

Posted by Martin Cordner on Friday, February 1, 2013, In : events & engagements 

So we come to Sunday 25th January, our last day at the Brass Weekend. This was the morning where we'd top and tail the four pieces one final time ready to run them in the afternoon. Not in a public concert, but in the intimate setting of the rehearsal room. 
After breakfast there was one last opportunity for sectional rehearsals, and this time members of the ASB were on hand to bolster the ranks. This was just what we needed in the cornet sectional. Another couple of hours would have been ide...

Saturday 24 January - the busy day!

The day began with breakfast and then we moved into session 1. The ASB took time to rehearse for the forthcoming evening concert and there delegates divided up for sectional rehearsals.

Day 2 started with breakfast at Eric & Femmy's house in Zeist.  We then had some time including lunch with Olaf Ritman and his wife Marleen in Ede.  In case you don't know, Olaf is the bandmaster of the Amsterdam Staff Band of the Salvation Army. Along with Marleen and their two children they worship at the Ede corps. Zeer aardige mensen.

Hi everyone,
It's great to be here with Leanne in the Netherlands for the Salvation Army's first annual Brass Weekend.  We understand that at this stage there are around 50 delegates attending plus staff. We're in for a good weekend, I'm sure.

We've had a good flight over...the weather in Belfast was generous and since landing in Amsterdam this afternoon, we've enjoyed being with good friends in the town of Zeist, not far from the city of Utrecht. Tomorrow the serious work begins and I hope to...

Leanne and I are really looking forward to joining colleague Salvationists in the Netherlands next week for the first annual Brass Weekend over 25-27 January.  

The weekend is an exciting new event and it's a real honour for us to be part of it. Among our responsibilities will be workshops, sectional rehearsals and opportunity to spend time with the Amsterdam Staff Band. 

I'll try and keep you posted on twitter, and in due course will post a short article on this site.
