Groups from the Youth and Junior Bands were out carolling during the last two weeks of December.
On the 16th December, the annual concert arranged by the cheshire area committee of the co-operative group took place at The Centre Stage Theatre in Crewe. The Youth, Junior and Beginner Bands filled the first half with festive music and the co-operative Funeralcare Band entertained a capacity audience in the second Half. As usual the Concert was very well received.
Joint concert with the Bostock Singers, Sunday 9th December
The Youth Band took part in a joint Concert with The Bostock Singers from Hartford. Our webmaster Phil Walsh sings with the choir, and daughter Rosie plays sax in the Youth Band. This proved to be one of the best Joint concerts we have taken part in. Both groups had a spot in the first half and then a real pot pourri of Christmas music filled the second half with joint numbers and audience participation.
This is a Concert we would like to repeat in 2013 but would hope for a larger audience to enjoy real quality live music!
Well done Youth Band - you played exceptionally well.
Friday 7th December proved to be a very busy evening with 2 groups of The Youth Band out.
A group of Brass players provided the music for The Light Up a Life service in Sandbach for St Luke's Hospice.
