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.

Thank You - Malc

Every band needs somewhere for people to 'learn the trade' and for salvationists this is usually the YP Band. It is therefore very important to have the correct leaders in place to ensure that our young people are ready for the challenges that the band brings. We have had a long line of very good YP Band Leaders at Boscombe and we are sad that this weekend Malcolm Randell has after many years stepped down (he is too young to retire!) from that post.

Malcolm has been an inspiration for our youngsters and as a Band we would like to use this public forum to thank him for his hard work, his humour and his time over the past years.
