All Saints Church, Thurcaston.
This concert, the eighth time that we have played at Thurcaston, marked the band’s first indoor performance for over 18 months. The date had been postponed and re-arranged depending on the advice for public gatherings but on 30th October, we finally played for an audience that has been loyal and enthusiastic for some time.
The concert also marked the sad passing of Jeff Kennington, Church warden, enthusiastic music lover and passionate supporter of the RSPCA. Jeff had been instrumental in arranging the concerts and we played one of his favorites, Hootenanny and took up a collection for the RSPCA in his memory.
The programme was compered by Eddie Pearson, who kindly gave the band a chance to get our breath back between numbers, and was as varied as ever, closing the first half with Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral by Wagner and the second half with Hootenanny by Harold Walters.
The band was ably supported by talented deps: Stewart and Chris on trumpet, Ian on trombone and Peter on tuba.
We thank them for their help!
