2017 concert 4 (800x598)Yesterday afternoon we held our Christmas Concert Jingle Bell Rock! at the Woodmead Halls in Lyme Regis and we were delighted to welcome over one hundred people who enjoyed a varied programme of seasonal music.2017 concert 3 (800x598)

Our concert was compered by popular local resident Nigel Ball and featured solos by our solo cornet Kathy Smith (far left)who played A Winter’s Tale 2017 concert 2 (800x598)and solo cornet David Tozer (above) who performed Santa Baby.

It was the first time on stage for our two young trainees James and Josh, who played a medley of Christmas numbers led by their tutor, David, and accompanied by several members of the band. The boys were rewarded for their commitment and hard work throughout the year when they were presented with The Chairman’s Award by our Chairman, Paul Snowball.

Youth was very much to the fore during the afternoon as our guest artists were 2017 concert 1 (800x598)Klara and Josie Smith, Cody Wootton and Sophie Rattenbury (left), who performed two lively dance routines following which Josie played two piano solos.

During the concert the Gordon Broom Memorial Award, presented to the player deemed by fellow band members to have made an outstanding contribution to the band, was presented to Kathy Smith by Mr Stuart Broom.

The afternoon concluded with carol singing. A good time was had by all and everyone went home happy and full of Christmas cheer!
