Saturday 2nd December saw us get our Christmas Season off to a flying start with our Christmas Fantasia performance at our favourite Capstone Theatre.
Supported by Ali White and the wonderful choir of Sudley Junior School (who were absolutely fabulous again this year) we performed a varied programme of music much of which had been arranged by our MD Adam Taylor and our Principal Euphonium Mike Jackson.
Judging by their reaction and comments the near capacity audience, our largest ever at Capstone, thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The Band and the Choir too had a fantastic time and really enjoyed performing together.
Despite only putting them together a couple of hours before the performance, our joint items went off really well too and the children were so disciplined as Sergeant Major Adam Taylor marched them off stage for the interval.
A huge vote of thanks to everyone who supported us on the night, to Ali White and Sudley Junior School Choir and of course to all the staff at Capstone who are so great to work with and provide so much help and support.
So we are now home from Cheltenham after our first ever appearance in the National Finals. Unfortunately the result is not what we would have liked, but having listened to the recordings we can say we couldn’t have asked for anymore. We had an absolutely great weekend in Cheltenham and the whole proces of preparation, rehearsal and performance has been a fantastic journey for the Band, one which under the guidance of our inspiration MD Adam Taylor, we look forward to continuing onwards and upwards! Congratulations to our fellow NW Bands Brindle and Thornton Cleveleys
Finally a huge thanks to all our sponsors and supporters who have helped to make this all possible.
Thank you all for your good wishes.
The band will be in action with our Summer programme in the next few weeks, so make sure you come and catch us before we start to knuckle down with some serious work for our first ever National Finals appearance in Cheltenham in September!
We will be performing at:
Vale Park, New Brighton on Sunday 23rd July at 2:30pm
Botanic Gardens, Southport on Sunday 30th July at 2:15pm
See you there!
