Var­ied pro­gramme of light clas­sics for band con­cert

Loughborough Echo - - THE GUIDE -

LOUGH­BOR­OUGH Con­cert Band per­formed a con­cert at All Saint’s Church, Thur­cas­ton, on Satur­day, Septem­ber 2.

The con­cert was held in aid of the churches in Thur­cas­ton and An­stey and the band played a var­ied pro­gramme of light clas- sics, mu­sic from the shows and more mod­ern mu­sic.

Com­pere Ed­die Pear­son kept the au­di­ence and band well in­formed thanks to his re­search into the mu­si­cal pieces.

The con­cert was well re­ceived and fin­ished with a rous­ing en­core as they played The Flo­ral Dance.

The pro­gramme in­cluded a solo spot for trum­peter Kevin Massey as he played Share my Yoke, and fea­tured a piece com­posed by band mem­ber Zoe Fen­ton from her Seascape.

Any­one in­ter­ested in hir­ing the band for a con­cert should con­tact the sec­re­tary Ian Wallis though the web­site at www. lough­bor­ough­con­cert­band.
