The Band performed in Durham Market Place this morning. It was great to see so many people stopping to listen and to catch up with close friends of the Band. A big congratulations goes to Anna who passed her audition on Wednesday night to become a regular member of the Senior Band from our learners. Today was her first official job. Well Done and we hope you have a long and happy time with the Band.
Tonight saw the Band play in the wonderful surroundings of St Stephen's Church in Willington. It was a fantastic concert with a programme which had something for everyone. We featured two soloists during the performance. Michael Evans, our Principal Cornet, played The Beauty of Blue and Lindsey Wright, our Solo Horn, played Go The Distance. Our Solo Cornets featured in Alan Catherall's Last Post and the whole Band tried out their singing skills in Saints Fantasy. A very enjoyable night lead to a standing ovation by the audience at the end. Videos from the performance can be found underneath the images of the night. A big thank you goes to Alfie, Sean, David, James, Laura and Danielle for helping us out tonight, it is very much appreciated.
