Bold as brass

The residents of Paris were bowled over by the Wellington Brass Band when they performed in the city recently. A huge audience gathered to hear the band play a selection of music in the Jardins de Luxembourg bandstand.

The award-winning band was visiting Chatenay-Malabry, just south of Paris, with other members of the Wellington Twinning Association. Mayor Anthony Lowe, who joined the group, recalls, “They played for over an hour, finishing with Les Marseillaises, God Save The Queen and an encore by popular request.

“The audience could not get enough of them. As Mayor of Wellington, I felt so proud.”
