Fine start for new Summer Concert Season

On a beautiful summer’s evening, Marine Parade was the perfect setting for the start of the band’s 2016 series of Tuesday evening concerts ‘Music by the Sea last week.’ Playing to an appreciative audience under new Musical Director Brian Scott, the many weeks of preparation were finally 100_2550put into practice.

Following the band’s recent recruitment drive, several new members were making their debuts. There was a varied programme to suit all tastes, including many pieces new to the repertoire. Band Chairman Paul Snowball delighted the audience with a deep solo on the E flat bass, ‘Forty Fathoms’, this contrasting with the lively march ‘Blaze Away’. As usual, the audience were given their moment in the limelight and invited to participate with percussion instruments in the lively Abba song, ‘Ring Ring.’

These concerts continue throughout July and August, beginning at 8 p.m. with additional concerts on some Sunday afternoons, from 2.30 to 4 p.m. Full details can be found on this website.
