Coronation Concert

The Band returned from their Xmas break ready to roll with a selection of new music, funded by Dodington Parish Council. On the last Sunday in February a training day was held to further develop the new pieces of music. This was held at Yate Parish Hall as a change from the regular rehearsal venue, Dodington Parish Hall. The day was skilfully led by Peter, our musical director and all enjoyed the playing, the lunch and Adele’s cakes!

The first engagement of the year was a Coronation Concert, organised by Dodington Parish Council in their Hall. Members of the audience were welcomed by flags and a light show, while the Band struck up with ‘This Is Brass’. A wide variety of music was played, including Peter’s medley arrangement, Patriotica, accompanied by hearty singing from the audience. Refreshments were kindly provided by the Council, and everyone enjoyed themselves; a fitting celebration of King Charles’ and Queen Camilla’s Coronations.
