Thanks to everyone who turned up at Soundwell Church last month to hear the band play, with proceeds in aid of their adopted charity.
It’s always good to play to a full house, and we were able to give the audience a ‘little extra’, with the presentation of our annual award (the Jim Churchill cup) to Yvonne. (She’s wearing the glitzy number for her vocal number, not the presentation – which was a surprise to her).
Hot on the heels of the concert on Thursday 5th comes the highlight of the year, the band AGM, which is on Monday 9th July, at Lansdown. Open to members of all bands, with an opportunity to play along with the usual Monday crowd’s rehearsal.
This is your opportunity to have your say on the organisation of the band, find out what happened in the last 12 months, and vote in next year’s committee (and maybe even put yourself forward in a role).
Currently recruiting Musicians:
We’ve recently had a few new members, but the Band has several other vacancies and would like to hear from all interested musicians, who would be welcome to join us to increase the size of all sections.
We currently are especially interested in musicians who play trumpet, French horn or trombone, but don’t let that put you off – all instrumentalists are very welcome to apply, at about Grade 5 and above.
