The Sovereign’s Concert

Posted by on Apr 22, 2018 in Latest News | Comments Off on The Sovereign’s Concert

Last Saturday we performed at The Venue, Lincoln with Massed Bands of The Army Cadet Force with cadets from Lincoln, Derby, Wales and Scotland. At the concert there was 70 of us on stage, a huge sound and during the concert our musical directors from each band rotated with some guest conductors also. The day started at 9am at Beckingham Army Camp where we met for morning rehearsal followed by afternoon rehearsals at The Venue with the concert starting at 7.30pm.

Our Assistant Director of Music James Wood was in charge if this whole event and it was a mammoth task to take on, five bands meeting on a Saturday morning that have never played together before, a couple of rehearsals during the day and then all coming together for a big concert at night taking on pieces such as Pomp & Circumstance.. But he pulled it off and the band sounded amazing! We look forward to working with the Army Cadets again in the future.
