We are delighted to announce that our recent concert in aid of Sarcoma UK raised £1,054 to help people affected by sarcoma. The concert, held at St. Barnabas Church last March, saw CSD Brass join forces with local ten-piece ensemble Prime Brass and visiting National First Section band Jersey Premier Brass for an evening extravaganza.
The bands dedicated the benefit concert to the memory of Dr. Luke Salter, a popular and respected member of the local brass playing community, who sadly died from Ewing’s sarcoma in 2002. More recently, this form of cancer also led to the death of internationally-renowned trumpeter Derek Watkins in 2013.
Sarcoma UK‘s mission is to amplify sarcoma awareness, inspire involvement, and fund ground-breaking research to transform the lives of everyone affected by sarcoma. The charity receives no government funding and relies solely on voluntary donations.
CSD Brass will be performing their next concert, “Tournament for Brass and other pieces” at 7pm this Saturday, May 20th at St. Luke’s Church, Victoria Road.
