Blasts From The Past!

This photo takes me back! This was 1985 and we were in our first year at the Royal College of Music in London. Boosey & Hawkes sponsored a weekend for aspiring young brass players at Newnam Courtney (very posh manor house in Oxfordshire!) – those were the days! The line up of staff was amazing: John Wilbraham & Graham Ashton coaching trumpets: Ifor James on Horn: Arthur Wilson on trombone: the amazing John Fletcher on tuba.

The line up of students has turned out pretty good too!
