January 2009

The band now look forward to the Area Contest at Stevenage in March playing the colourful “New World Sketches” by Daniel Price. Based on American life in the 1930s, the scoring involves 4 percussionists who have to deal with no fewer than 18 percussion instruments.

We are extremely grateful to Jan Bower (Horn) and Laurence May (Flugel) who have helped us through a difficult time over the last few months and continue to do so.

We are delighted to announce that cornet player Chris Petty gave birth to baby Kim on 16th January. Many congratulations Chris & Trevor.
