The Band finished the Christmas Season off at Sainsbury's at the Arnison Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday Evening.
The Band have been playing again at the Locomotion at Shildon for the second weekend and for the second Santa Special weekend. Our newly appointed conductor Peter also made his debut with the Band. This also marked the Band's final two sit down concerts of the Christmas Season as it is two carol jobs to go at Sainsbury's. Sunday also marked the final time in which Michael would be conducting the Band as he returns to sitting down on Principal Cornet as of January. The Band would like to thank Michael for all of the hard work in which he has done over the last 12 years he has been conducting the band.
The Band have played at a very mild Beamish Museum tonight. The highlight of the night was when our Euphonium Player Ray Lee sung a solo - The Boy That Santa Claus Forgot - Usually, Ray is the bar humbug member of the band.
The Band have been playing at the Locomotion in Shildon this weekend as part of their Santa Special Weekend. We would like to say a massive thank you to Fiona and Gareth for coming along and helping us out on Euphonium and Bass Trombone.
The Band had an enjoyable morning playing at Pittington Primary School's Christmas Fayre. We would also like to welcome Catherine Sweeney to the Band filling our flugel vacancy and playing at her first job today.
The Band were due to play at the Durham Christmas Festival held on the Market Place this morning but due to the awful weather conditions, we decided to cancel the engagement. Durham County Council also cancelled two outdoor markets. The Band then played at Birtley Masonics on the evening.
