Band Notes - April 2016
The April update is a brief one - having had a very busy end to March, this month was almost a holiday! Apart from our regular support of worship at Boscombe Salvation Army, the Band's only engagement was on the cliff top providing the music for a ceremony to mark the Queen's 90th Birthday.
The relative lull in activity has given us the opportunity to once again expand the repertoire - in a few week's time we will be having a Band Sunday and the evening concert will be a "Classics" themed one. This has resulted in a few classical transcriptions being added to our folders - they will no doubt be used again over the coming months in our bandstand programmes. More details on the programme will follow in due course.
Additionally we have started to prepare Kenneth Downie's Music of Thanksgiving - a great addition to the repertoire.
We also welcome another addition to the Band - Campbell Smith joins his Dad, Norry, and brother Fraser in the Band from the start of May - amazingly that means we now have 43 playing members.
