far east floraThe Desford Band has been a regular visitor to the Far East for well over a decade or more now.

Their latest trip recently saw Singapore and Thailand added to the visitor’s stamps in passports already bearing the visa details of the Philippines and Malaysia of previous years.

Their strong links to the region come through David Smith, Principal Trumpet of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and occasional Desford ‘top-man’.

David is also a Director of the burgeoning Brass Explosion Festival, at which this year Desford featured as a headlining act.

The Festival only started in 2010, but has already become well established as a major music attraction in the Far East.
