Open Rehearsal 2013

The annual open rehearsal was - as always - well attended and gave the members of the Band Reserve and other friends of the Band an opportunity to hear music old and new. Included in the programme this year was an 'auction' for an opportunity to take the place of our Bandmaster and conduct the Band in a march - This proved so popular that there were three winners - and therefore three marches - Bernard Snell, Ramsay Caffull and Andrew Main all winning the chance to experience just what it is like to stand in front of our Band.

A Musical Feast for Lent

The Sunday Concert by the Band took the congregation on a journey of readings, songs and band items around the theme of Lent.  The programme was excellently put together by our Bandmaster and offered plenty of opportunity for our Sunday Evening congregation to join in with the singing.

We also formally welcomed Lee Allcock into the bass section. Lee has been at a few rehearsals since the start of the year and now is moving down with his family to Bournemouth. We hope that Lee enjoys his service with the Band.

Band Concert

At the conclusion our CO, Major Ray Begley, combined a benediction with a prayer for our Bandmaster, Howard - and we would ask that, as he starts treatment tomorrow, you would also pray for him in the coming weeks and months.

Concert with Bournemouth Male Voice Choir

The Band's first concert of 2013 was in partnership with the Bournemouth Male Voice Choir under their Musical Director Mark Burstow.  Although the concert was a "home" event for the Band it was organised and arranged by Pokesdown Corps in order to raise funds for The Big Collection.

The programme consisted of a varied mix of music from classical to popular and included a number of "first performances" for the band as the repertoire has changed at the start of the year, including Paul Hindmarsh's realisation of the Chorale Prelude on French by Wilf Heaton and three movements from Karl Jenkins' Stabat Mater.
