We can’t actually believe it is August, it has felt like the last month has flown by!

The quartet have been in duo’s for the last year working in Pupil Referral Units in Merseyside on behalf of Live Music Now! The school’s final concert with the duo’s were held in early July with the children performing a selection on pieces on pBone, whilst being accompanied by the quartet. There was a little after concert party where the quartet showed off their terrible football skills…

Also, in a duo Nick and Matt spent at day working with some primary school children, showing them the ropes of the pBone!

Nick, very luckily, was invited to go on tour with RNCM Symphony Orchestra to Italy in late July and left the three of us to hold a pBone workshop at the Bridgewater4All day with the Piccadilly Symphony Orchestra. Even without Nick the whole day was a great success and we might have gained some budding brass players!

The quartet have been producing some more popular music for the Manchester Metropolitan University Annual Staff Awards, held in their Business School. The Quartet entertained guests whilst they arrived at the event.

The quartet also were the entertainment for a family birthday party in Ripponden, a collection of an 18th, 21st and 50th! Despite the weather, a great day was had by all!

And on a more wonderful note, the quartet were privileged to support Steve’s brother at his Wedding in Bath Abbey and wedding breakfast later that evening.
