Even though the band have performed at two Christmas engagements already (the first being in mid November) we started our very Christmas period tonight with a concert at Quebec Village Hall. The concert was opened by the bands learners section led expertly by the band, and conducted by Doreen, and aided by some of the senior band. They played four pieces and did very well for only their second time of playing in public.
The senior band then took to the stage and gave their usual polished and entertaining programme with a mixture of 'normal' music and quite a lot of Christmas music to get the audience into the Christmas mood. There was also a debut for our very own Laura da Costa as a vocalist, she gave a brilliant rendition of 'Santa Baby' backed by the band.
Job done, kit packed, van packed, ready for tomorrows engagement at Beamish Museum.
