Spring 2020

Here are rehearsal dates, concert and general band information for this term – plus early details for later in the year.  We’ll aim to put any last-minute information about rehearsals here after Susie has emailed – so keep checking!
Spring Term rehearsal dates:  7th Jan – 31st March [which gives us 8 weeks before the 8th March concert].  March 10th, after the Barnes Music Festival concert, is curry night instead of a rehearsal!
Our principal concert this term is the Barnes Music Festival, on Sunday March 8th at St Mary’s, Barnes.   The theme is  “Musical Journeys”.   Here is the repertoire, with links where examples are on YouTube:   Prismatic Light – Alan Fernie;  Oregon – Jacob de Haan;  Concerto – Artie Shaw – Soloist: Elinor Campbell-Smith;  Out of Africa – John Barry;  On the Street Where You Live – Alan Jay Lerner & Frederick Loewe – Vocalist: Jonathan Williams;  Danzon No.2 – Arturo Marquez;  Isn’t She Lovely – Stevie Wonder arr. Hideaki Miura;  Thames Journey – Nigel Hess.
Summer Term rehearsal dates:  21st April – 21st July [which takes us neatly up to our confirmed Regent’s Park gig on 26th July].
We already have a busy schedule of events in 2020 – please check our concerts page, get dates in the diary, and please let your section leader know your availability asap.
The Band’s AGM was held on 14th Jan with reports from the Chair, the Music Director and the Treasurer.  All current Committee members were happy to continue in their roles, and were duly nominated, seconded and appointed.  Less formally, more help is always welcome, just let us know if you’d like to offer further support, it’s really enjoyable!
