Enjoyable and lively evening
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.
