Back again at All Saints

What a lovely evening we had tonight at All Saints. The village hall was packed. There was a very varied programme of entertainment, including some lovely singing by the children from the local primary school, hand bell ringers, a saxophone group, singers, a poetry reading and the local WI sang a farewell number as they are about to disband and reform.

 

The band was conducted on this occasion by David Tozer, and we played several pieces – but one of the highlights of the evening for us was the appearance of three members of our Training Band, two of whom were performing in public for the first time. They played three numbers led by their tutor, Ellis Holt, and supported by solo cornet, Kathy Smith, and their performance was warmly received by the audience. Also warmly applauded was a solo rendition of My Old Kentucky Home played beautifully by Ellis.

The concert concluded with everyone singing The Twelve Days of Christmas. It was a super evening and the best bit is that we’ve been booked to play again next year.

I managed to get a photo of the cornets this time…….
