Week 1  Starting with a Fanfare


Deal Music & Arts Online is a new initiative to help bring its work to all at this challenging time.  We hope that all we present and offer is informative and engaging.


We begin with a fanfare – of sorts.  The trumpet is our feature, and we discover the difference between the old baroque (natural) trumpet and the modern instruments.


We have selected artists and works that have particular relevance to Deal and our festival activities as well as our education programme Bold As.


Please click on the following links to open the relevant films in a new window, all of which come free of any charge:
