Late August and early September 2017.
Sunday 20th August 2017.
Loughborough Concert Band play at Stratford.
For the second year the Band was invited to play in Stratford upon Avon bandstand. This year the weather stayed fine until we had finished playing which meant our audience was able to relax as they listened.
The varied programme included Share my Yoke with the solo played by Keven Massey on trumpet. Another solo spot, performed by Zoe Felton on Romance from The Gadfly, had a moment’s high drama when Zoe faced the hazards of playing outdoors as the breeze tipped her music. As a true performer, she kept playing…
Other pieces included Amparito Roca and In a Monastery Garden, which featured the band singing … in Latin!
Saturday 2nd September 2017.
Concert at All Saint’s Church, Anstey Lane, Thurcaston.
Compered by Eddie Pearson who kept the audience and band well informed thanks to his research in to the musical pieces, the band played a programme that touched a wide range of musical genre. This included what has been described as the worst tune in the world (MacArthur Park) and an alleged band favourite, Wagner’s Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral.
The audience was very enthusiastic and called for an encore of The Floral Dance. All funds went to the Anstey Churches.
