It’s that time of the year again – Last Night of The Proms 2015

Well here we are again, at the end of a very busy [as per usual] summer season of concerts, weddings and many other occasions.  The year has been a good one for the band so far.  Steve Rogers has taken the band through the year with gusto and real enthusiasm for music and entertaining the public.  I think the series of three open air Pageant Gardens concerts really showed off the band to its best – well done to all involved and especially Steve for all the hard work with music and rehearsals.  A huge thanks to Sherborne Town Council for supporting these events.

It is that time of the year again where we are busy getting things ready for the Last Night Of The Proms – 26th September.  It is sure to be another great concert, so get your tickets early – tickets on sale from end of August via Sherborne Tourist Information Centre and via the website.  We regret, due to closure, tickets will not be available from Sherborne Photographic.  Tickets will, of course, be available on the door.

It was fantastic to receive a cheque for £250 for our new set of music folders, which are a much needed item for a band and something that gets easily marked and broken over the years.  They will look smart and hold the all important sheet music – you can see them in their glory at the Sherborne Historic Vehicle Rally on Sunday 30th August.  Thanks to rotarian Brian Hellyar who made the presentation to Natalie Miles, our band Secretary.
