Cold Ash Brass is based in the village of Cold Ash, just North of Newbury and Thatcham in Berkshire and just 2 miles from Junction 13 of the M4.
We are a friendly 3rd section brass band, with a varied concert and contest schedule.
We rehearse every week on Thursdays at 7:30-9:30pm at St Mark's School, Cold Ash.
We also have a community band which rehearse on a Thursday at 6:15-7:15. This is aimed at both the young and older generation and is a foundation into ensemble playing.
Finally we have a quintet and a 10 piece brass ensemble that are available for smaller functions.
Our current musical director, Jemma Evans, joined us in 2012. Under her leadership we won our first contest in 2014 at SCABA Autumn Contest. Our next venture saw us placing second at the L&SC regional contest meaning another place in the national final. This year we hope to continue our successes as we prepare for the next regional competition.
