FRIENDS JOIN THE BAND IN CONCERT FOR A FANTASTIC PERSONAL CAUSE
Sherwood Forest Brass where joined in concert tonight by the Hatfield Band (Yorkshire) and singers Maryla Mondszein, Tom Cartledge and Emily Bailey in a charity concert for the Chemotherapy Unit, Nottingham City Hospital.
Our cornet player Amy Mondschein is currently undergoing treatment there and the band, family and friends wished to show their support to Amy and the unit by staging this concert to raise funds. The concert was held in the beautiful setting of St Philip Neri Church, Mansfield and the audience were treated to original brass band music, opera, and music from the shows as the church was filled with wonderful sounds. 
There were many highlights during the evening but the most emotional moment was the playing from Amy herself in Concerto De Aranjuez. Typifying Amy’s strength of character she followed the solo up in the second half with the duet Claire De Lune which was written for her Dad, Stan Lippeatt, however on this occasion she was joined by family friend Mark Walters.
£750 was raised on the evening which takes Amy’s fund raising total to £3,500.
