Derwent raise funds for MS Society

Earlier in the year Derwent Brass put on a charity event in the popular venue of Landau Forte Theatre, Derby.£600 was raised for the Derby & District Office of the MS Society, a very worthy charity indeed.

MS Society Derwent Brass Charity Event

Members of the MS Society came to support the event and have offered these kind words:

"We were the fortunate nominees for this charity concert by Derwent Brass held at Landau Forte college in Derby. And what a wonderful evening it turned out to be.

There was a full house due to the many fans who turned out to hear the musical talents of the band. Their repertoire is vast, and they played a wide variety of different styles of music so that no matter what genre you liked, there would be plenty to enjoy.

It was obvious that the band really enjoy the challenge, and every member needed to be on top form. The soloists were amazing and a delight to listen to, really quite incredible that they played such intricate and difficult pieces so well.
It really was an evening to savour, and all we heard from the audience was enthusiastic acclaim and a determination to attend future performances. Wonderful, then, that all this was done to raise money for us. Our sincere thanks."

Derwent Brass often supports the community and charities, using proceeds from such events to help better the lives of others. More recently, they put on another event in this same venue for the Derbyshire branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Assocation; a review of this night to follow shortly....

We wish the MS Society the very best for the future.
