Concert at Abbey Park Leicester

[Sunday 12th May 2024]

Well, we had our parking challenges and the wind ruffled our music, but the rain held off and the sun shone equally on both sides of the band this year!

The park of busy with families enjoying the sun and our seated audience received our programme enthusiastically.

We gave them, among other things, Sousa’s march The Thunderer, and for a complete change of mood Barbie Girl (Norreen and Rasted,) the very soulful Stal Himmel (Fernie), the hugely popular Hawaii Five-O (Stevens) Ravel’s beautiful Pavanne and rounded it all off with The Magnificent Seven (Bernstein.)

We were aided by our kind and talented deps, all old friends of the band: Ian Bartrum on euphonium, Margaret Benson on oboe, Katherine Lee on clarinet, John Warner on trumpet and Steve Boyles on tuba. Thank you to all of them. And special mention of Claudia who took her keyboard but was unable to play it owing to power problems…

Our next outing is on 15th June St James Church in Normanton on Soar, Loughborough.

New dates are still being added.
