We got a letter in the post today from the wonderful people at the Radcliffe Trust. Much better than most Christmas post, this one was to tell us that they have decided to award us a whopping £5,000 towards the Tour de Brass! This is great news, that will mean even more performances of our David Sawer commission and our outdoor programme of the best brass chamber music, and it might even allow us to do some other fun documentation things connected to the project. Watch this space! In the meantime, we’re having another Christmas sherry to toast the generous trustees of the Radcliffe Trust – thank you!
