The band was pleased to make its usual trip to All Saints on Wednesday, 7th December to take part in the Annual WI Concert which was this year organised by David Knight and Steve Holt. As usual this event was a sell out and the very appreciative audience was treated to a varied selection of entertainment including performances by the children of All Saints Primary School, beautiful piano solos by the very talented Toby Willis, the excellent All Saints Offbeats, an amusing reading by Michael Shaw and a hilarious item by the WI members themselves.
The band played five numbers and our euphonium soloist accompanied David and Steve for their rendition of “Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. One of the highlights of the evening was “The Twelve Days of Christmas” which was performed by the audience, including the band, who not only sang it unaccompanied but also added various actions to match the words.
A good time was had by all and the band was very pleased to receive a Christmas card from Steve and David with the message “Just a short note to express our thanks to all the band for joining us once again at the All Saints Christmas Concert. Great playing and enjoyable company. Many thanks to all.” We are pleased to announce that the band has already been booked for a return visit on Wednesday, 13th December 2017.
