Brass Master Class 2014

10th March 2014
We were honoured to hold a master class given by Christopher Deacon at The Vale Academy. Christopher is at present, principal trumpet with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia but also works with some of the finest orchestras of Great Britain, including the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.  

He has played the trumpet on the soundtrack of many films including Harry Potter and is the soloist for the Coronation Street theme tune. Students from other secondary and primary schools were treated to an amazing selection of solos from Chris before he gave a short lesson to three Vale Academy students. Students from all participating schools then formed a mass brass band with Chris conducting. What a fabulous opportunity for local brass players.
