Jubilee Gala Concert celebrating fifty years of th
This concert took place on Saturday 7th October 2017 in Hodson Hall, Loughborough Grammar School.
Those taking part were:
Loughborough Male Voice Choir
Loughborough Concert Band
A large audience of music lovers gathered in the lovely setting of Hodson Hall for a full and varied programme that included solo singers and choral performances. And the Loughborough Concert Band sitting quietly on the stage as they waited for their turn!
Eddie Pearson, the band’s travelling compere, was there allowing Dave to concentrate on the performance and the band to get their breath back between pieces. They opened with Voice of the Guns and moved to Bond…James Bond. The first half ended with a joint performance of Gwahoddiad, arranged by Dave Coble. This included a real treat as previous members of the choir were invited to sing and the sound was fabulous.
In the second half the band played The Flintstones and Ashokan Farewell and followed it by accompanying Caroline Sharpe as she sang I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables. The whole concert was ended by a performance of The World in Union, again arranged by Dave Coble, which included all performers, singers or instrumentalists alike.
The whole evening was held in aid of Rainbows and raised nearly £2000.
