Wind band marks mile­stone with suc­cess­ful spring fling

The Oban Times - - Districts -

LOCHABER Com­mu­nity Wind Band staged a suc­cess­ful Spring Fling to mark its 21st birth­day.

Forty mu­si­cians took part in the con­cert at Dun­cans­burgh Mac­In­tosh Church, Fort Wil­liam, on Sun­day May 14.

The am­a­teur mu­si­cians, based in Fort Wil­liam, put to­gether an ex­cel­lent pro­gramme of mu­sic, sup­ported by mu­si­cians from across Scot­land.

A band spokesper­son said: ‘It was won­der­ful to have Charles Hine lead­ing the band for our week­end cel­e­bra­tion. He is an ab­so­lute gen­tle­man.’

The Ro­tary Club of Lochaber sup­ported the event by man­ning the doors and sell­ing tick­ets and pro­grammes.

Ro­tary mem­bers Mar­garet Boyd and Sheana Fraser served tea, cof­fee and bis­cuits at the in­ter­val, with pro­ceeds go­ing to the ro­tary club.

The band was founded in 1996 by John G Whyte, who has been the band’s con­duc­tor and prime mo­ti­va­tor since.
