Students learning to play a brass instrument at Richmond School were given a special opportunity to learn from and perform with the Prince Bishops Brass ensemble.

The quintet has built a wide repertoire of music, from Renaissance brass, baroque and classical to upbeat jazz and swing arrangements.

After workshops in small groups, focusing on learning and performing a new piece of music, the full group reassembled for a final performance together.

Students who took part in the event ranged from grades one to eight in their chosen instrument.
