Ashcombe Brass Ensemble Play On
Congratulations to members of the Ashcombe Brass Ensemble who with the help of technology have managed to carry on playing as a group from their own homes despite lockdown. The group have worked hard under the leadership of Ian Stott, to perform a piece by Giovanni Gabrieli. Not only is the musicianship impressive, involving Ashcombe pupils from Year 7 through to Upper Sixth, but it has been skillfully edited by Billy Murphy in the Upper Sixth, with 10 brass players playing in 10 different rooms.
This is a brilliant effort in terms of the music, use of technology and the desire to fundraise for the East Surrey Hospital COVID-19 appeal.

Well done to Billy Murphy and all members of the Brass Ensemble.
