A great concert evening for the band and everyone who attended although the weather was nasty it did not prevent too many people from turning out. Included in the programme was Euphonium Soloist Jess Marshall who played a beautiful rendition of ‘O Holy Night’ other pieces included were ‘Mr Jums’, ‘Hallelujah’, ‘Stop the Cavalry’ and ‘Hey Jude’ a horn trio but, this time with a difference; featuring:- On Flugel Horn Norman Horton, Solo Horn Joanne Brookes-Wright, 1st Horns Yvonne Higham and Tom Coxon , 2nd Horn Kerry Sweet. Well Done everyone! Finally massive thanks to Bob Davies on percussion (You’re a star), our old faithful (meant in the kindest of ways) Steve Sweeting who travelled all the way from Bridlington, you don’t know how much we appreciate your efforts, Gordon Truman and finally Graham (from Maltby) sorry Graham I don’t know your surname.
