It’s always good to be asked back to a venue where we have played before and this spring was no exception. We were invited once again to play a concert with our MD Pamela Flanagan at the Erskine homes for Service Personnel. We opened with a great version of The Liberty Bell by Souza that roused not only foot tapping but also a little impromptu conducting from a member of the audience. We later found out that he had been a Bandmaster so his applause was most appreciated, but watch out Pamela you had competition! The rest of the Programme included some Holbourne, a delightful Irish Suite that included a piece entitled The Goroum (if anyone knows what this is please pass it on) Brian Bonsor’s Afton Water and finished with his Festivo.
It was good fun and our audience seemed to enjoy the choice of music.
