NASUWT Brass Band and their Christmas Concert

In my previous life I was a teacher and my union was the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers.  How fitting then to find they were playing at Ushaw a Christmas Concert.  With twenty minutes worth of photography under my belt what a surprise to discover that a friend last seen in 1994 was one of the cornet players!  Our paths had crossed at a funeral in 1998 but we were not in a position to talk, so there was a great deal of catching up to be done.

The band has a wonderful voice and richly deserves the accolade of top regional band.  During rehearsals I photographed them from all and every angle.  The one thing that you can guarantee with a collection of brass instruments is that they will gleam whenever light hits them!
