10th anniversary concert

10th anniversary concert

October 21st, 2006

This was held at Dodington Parish Hall and proved to be a rousing and enjoyable evening! We performed a wide variety of music, including some pieces that have been important to the Band over our first 10 years of history such as Young Amadeus and Aces High. Many other pieces were new to the Band such as Summertime, Nessum Dorma, Phantom Trumpeter and Basin Street Blues
The climax of the Evening was Hymn to the Fallen, which certainly gripped the Band and hopefully also the audience, prior to an enthusiastic rendition of another old favourite, Instant Concert!
Percy expertly led the players all evening, interspersed with jokes and stories, and whilst indulging in a little flag waving at the very end, suffered a broken flag stick, causing the Union Jack to narrowly miss the first trombonist!
We are very grateful to those who attended, especially local councillors who once again offered us their support, and also some kind words of encouragement as to how the Band has progressed during the decade.
