  • “We missed Five Star Brass when they first played at Sewerby Methodist Chapel. Thank goodness we didn’t miss them this time. Five exceptionally talented musicians gave an appreciative audience a varied programme ranging from John Williams to Duke Ellington via Gershwin, Saint-Saëns and Pachelbel et al.  We had virtuoso solo performances from all five members of the quintet.”

    I had so much positive and appreciative feedback at church yesterday morning. I know we were all thrilled with the music and your talents.
    I really do hope you will be able to come again and I look forward to that very much.
    Thank you again"
