So far this summer the Band hasn’t done particularly well with the weather with (at the time of writing) 100% success in playing during rain! The sun however always seems to get out sometime during the performance!
June saw a great concert with the Façade Singers from the Ormiston Victory Academy with music from South Pacific, Jesus Christ Superstar and other hit numbers being performed with the Band.
Our next performances are at Gorleston Bandstand at 2pm on 2nd August and Chapelfield Bandstand at 3pm on Sunday 9th August and we hope the weather will be better on these occasions!
Turning to the Autumn, our concerts at Taverham Village Hall will be held on Fri/Sat 16th & 17th October when we shall be playing a fantastic range of music including a tribute to Elvis, who would be celebrating his 80th birthday this year, and also to two iconic figures lost to the world of music in 2015 namely James Last and the film composer James Horner. Horner, whose music has featured in the biggest screen blockbusters including ‘Avatar’ and ‘Titanic’, was tragically killed in a plane accident in June, just weeks after conducting his Titanic score at the Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Full details next month when tickets will go on sale.
