En­joy­able and lively evening

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS - Review by He­len Sadler

LOUGH­BOR­OUGH Con­cert Band played at St Bo­tolph’s Church, Shep­shed, on Satur­day, Septem­ber 16 to raise funds for Shep­shed Food­bank.

The au­di­ence re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated the pro­gramme which was shared be­tween the band and the Caro­line Sharpe Singers - and some tal­ented mem­bers per­formed with both groups.

The singers took the au­di­ence through a mu­si­cal smor­gas­bord of treats with songs rang­ing from The Kings Bal­lad at­trib­uted to King Henry Vlll, a song from the mu­si­cal A Cho­rus Line, to Tell Me it’s Not True from Blood Broth­ers and a marvel­lous ar­range­ment of Billy Joel’s For the Long­est Time.

The band played a var­ied pro­gramme that started with Voice of the Guns and a med­ley of tunes from The Phan­tom of the Opera, Over the Rain­bow and Bond...James Bond. It fin­ished the first half with Wag­ner’s Elsa’s Pro­ces­sion to the Cathedral.

The sec­ond half of the pro­gramme in­cluded pieces where the two en­sem­bles per­formed to­gether. In a Monastery Gar­den was en­hanced by the singers and The Flo­ral Dance gave the au­di­ence a chance to flex their vo­cal mus­cles.

It was an en­joy­able and lively evening that was held for a cause close to peo­ple’s hearts and in a beau­ti­ful venue.

Pic­tured are the Caro­line Sharpe Singers.
