Christmas Concert, St Botolph’s Church Shepshed.
This concert, filled with the exuberance of youth, was also a testament to the hard work and dedication of Dave Coble. It was the 37th Christmas concert he has arranged at the Church. This year the band shared the musical honours with the St Botolph’s school Christmas choir who stunned us with their singing and their movement whilst singing. Speaking for myself, I hope they haven’t given Dave ideas!
The band’s programme included Christmas carols and the congregation was encouraged by Eddie Pearson, our Compere, to stand and join in with The First Nowell, See Amid the Winter Snow, O Come All Ye Faithful and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. The programme also included the atmospheric Walking in the Air, and from the screen Polar Express and Frozen. We played Fairy Tale of New York a tribute to both Shane MacGowan and Christmas.
The concert was played in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Charnwood and the Leader of Shepshed Town Council.Saturday 16th December 2023
