Come and Play day - Saturday 16th March 2024

We held our fourth Come and Play day on Saturday. We were delighted by the response to our event and ended up with a band of 70 musicians. We enjoyed making music together and also a time of catching up with people over lunch.

With around 40 minutes per piece we managed to rehearse 5 new pieces of music under the experienced baton of our MD - Colin Cranmer. The pieces he chose for the day were:- Laughter in the Rain, Partita II, Time to Say Goodbye, The Lion King and Devil's Gallop.

The day ended with some refreshments with friends and families and a mini concert of all the pieces we'd been rehearsing during the day.

Here are some photos. There are many more on our Facebook page and more content will be added in due course.

We would like to thank members of the church and the audience who gave us such a warm welcome, including some very lovely cakes!
