Da Capo Concert BandWritten by Nick Jones Wednesday, 07 January 2015 17:24
Wind and brass players are needed to supplement the band, and newcomers will be welcome at rehearsals starting at 8 p.m. each Wednesday evening.
The band’s first concert of 2015 will be at St John the Baptist, starting at 7.30 p.m. on Saturday 28 March.
The programme promises a range of well-known and symphonic wind band music, including selections from Mary Poppins, the ‘Robin Hood Suite’ by Frederic Curzon, Phillip Sparke’s ‘Albion Heritage’ and ‘The Hounds of Spring’ by Alfred Reed.
The band takes its name from the musical term da capo, ‘from the beginning’, and is still going strong after 17 years.
Martin Short, a member of the band committee, said their objective is to provide amateur adult woodwind, brass and percussion players with a friendly, dynamic and challenging environment in which to play.
The band performs three major concerts a year. Tickets on the door: adults £8, concessions £5, children under 12 free.
