News September and October 2011
The Junior Band have reached the final of the Music for Youth competition, and will be taking part at no lesser place but the Royal Albert Hall in London! The concert will take place on Monday evening, 7th November 2011. so make sure that you keep the date free. Well done to Emma and all of the band members!!
We now have a new conductor for the beginner band Anna Mitchyn.
Anna joined the Youth Wind Band in 2004 on 2nd Flute while a pupil at the Dingle Primary School in Haslington. She has now progressed to solo flute and section leader. She has been featured as a soloist with the band and has played as a member of a mixed quartet. She has been involved with The Beginner Band since its inception in January 2010 as flute mentor and took up conducting duties in September 2011 after the former conductor, Helen Fairclough left to go to Universiry.
Anna is currently studying AS levels in music, maths with statistics, early history and geography at Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College. She is a member of many school clubs including the concert band and orchestra. She also plays the piano, piccolo and oboe.

The joint concert organised by the Crewe mail voice choir at the beautiful location of St Mary's church, Nantwich on Saturday 8th October was well attended despite the bad weather. The joint numbers of Men of Harlech and Cwm Rhondda were very well received.
The concert at the Civic Hall, Nantwich on Sunday 2nd October was very enjoyable, with a lot of new and varied music. It raised £559 as our contribution to the running costs of the bandroom.
The Cheshire area committee of the Co-operative group have given us a grant to pay for the junior band members coach to London. This is the second coach that they have provided for us as they also paid for the coach tp the symphony hall in Birmingham. We are very grateful for their continuing support.
The Co-operative Wind Bands have received a grant of £500 from Adactus Housing (Manchester). The grant will be used to help with administration costs and new music for all 3 Bands.
A big thank you to all at Adactus for their kind donation.
