The family of Danny Longstaff, ex-second trombone of the CBSO who died last week at 63, have asked us to post details of his funeral for all who knew and loved this heartbeat of music in the Midlands.
The funeral will be held at St Paul’s Church, St Pauls Square, Birmingham at 2pm on Wednesday 15 April.
The wake will be held at Brasshouse, Broad Street, Birmingham from 3.30pm.
Dad knew so many people…it would be amazing to have as many people there as can come.
During the funeral there will be an opportunity for anyone who would like to join in with accompanying the hymns, so bring your instruments if you would like! Music and stands will be out in the church. The hymns will be: ‘Immortal, invisible, god of us all’ and ‘I vow to thee my country’.
We will be accepting donations rather than flowers if anyone wants to contribute. We will be raising money for the Critical Care Trust Fund (at City Hospital) as they provided such amazing care for Dad whilst he was there.
