Band News - 25 July 2016

In the first rehearsal back after the break, we were pleased to welcome back Laura on cornet and Britta on flute, and several of our new members made it back too :-)

Bob took the band through several pieces in preparation for the forthcoming In Full Swing concert on 10 September, and, as usual, there were a few contenders for Star of the Evening. With several of their section missing, Julie, Clare (the football fan one) and Bob gave strong performances on clarinet. Despite their bagpipe-inspired entry to the Lion King, the cornets received several nominations - including from themselves. But tonight's award goes to Bill on euphonium, who finally managed to count to two in the Pink Panther and come in at the right place ;-)
