Happy New Year

A Happy New Year to all friends of the Band. With this first news item of the year we report on a some additions to our website. Firstly, to follow up from our last news item of last year, this year we will maintain a repertoire page throughout the year, so that you can see our contributions to the weekly services as well as our festival programmes.

The final new addition is a set of pages dedicated to our forthcoming tour of scandinavia. You will see that there are already links from that page to some previous tours - the rest will be coming soon - as will a map of all of the places that the Band has visited during its 125 year history.

We are looking forward to a great year, we hope that you will get a chance to take part in that year in some way. Look out for more additions to the website.

What We Played

We know that many people are interested in what music the Band are playing, so we have put together a complete list of what we have played this year! Hopefully we haven't missed anything.

 

Christmas 2010

The band's year finished in its usual way with the visits to many of the town's hotels on Christmas Eve and, most importantly, with the visit to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital on Christmas morning. This year, in common with the tradition, Tommy Lynch conducted the Band in "The virgin Mary had a baby boy" - you will have to check what number that is in the carol book to find out how old Tommy is now!

You can see photos of both Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning on Facebook.

We were sorry that the visit to the hospital was the last band engagement for Ian Mercer who will be moving with his wife, Sheila, to Norfolk in the New Year. We do, of course, thank Ian for all that he has done in the Band and wish them both all the best for the future. Hopefully we will see them again soon!

Rotary Carols 2010

This year's Rotary Carol Concert was in aid of the Youth Cancer Trust, a charity based in Bournemouth providing action holidays for young people with Cancer or other malignant disease. As always the hall was very full with the choir from Epiphany Church of England primary school once again joining with the Band, the timbrels and this year's guest soloist, Hilary Bromage. The choir had brought many supporters with them and the parents must have been very proud of their children as they entertained us all - including singing one song, The Groovy Message, written by some of the children themselves.

Our bandmaster had a special word of praise for the choir's percussionist, Anna Saunders, and Alexander Francis treated us all again to his saxophone playing - this year his choice was Walking in the Air from The Snowman.

As always a good sum was raised by the event and the programme is now available on the website.
