Music in the Park
This was distinctly a day of contrasts: one side of the band needed sunglasses and the other side was glad to put on their band fleece. The sun blazed down but a chilly wind was penetrating and played havoc with the music. The audience, nearly 100 strong, was not put off by the weather and judging by the thanks and happy comments at the end, we played well.
The programme was as well chosen as ever, featuring stirring marches, film music and songs from the shows. And even Thunderbirds! Our compere, Eddie Pearson, gave us enough time to peg down the flapping music while he chatted to the audience before introducing the next number.
One of the final pieces, Sparkling Drums featured the drumming talents of Henry Marvell as he showed us what drums can do – thanks Henry!
