Youth Band Abbey School Concert

Well, I’ve just got back from the Abbey Primary School Christmas concert.  Together, with the Abbey School choir, the Youth Band played some cracking tunes (including Abba’s Super Trooper) and some traditional Christmas stuff!

It was really great to see all the kids at the concert – the band has come such a long way since its start in 2008, with just a few members.  Even newest member Joe stood up and did a solo – which I thought was very brave – it was his first time playing live with the Youth Band – well done Joe, it took real guts to get up and do that!  Bravo!

The Abbey school choir and recorders group were fantastic and the crowd obviously appreciated your Christmas songs!  Well done!

The hall was packed out with parents and supporters of the band, and the Canon Eric Woods was present also, and I did see him singing along at one point!  Great stuff vicar! 

All in all, a very enjoyable evening – and it is always great to help the band out when I can.  It brings so much pleasure to people and if I can help and be a part of it, thats brilliant.  That’s what banding and Sherborne Town Band is all about… long may it continue. 

Well done to all who participated – I look forward to carols in the street on Saturday!

Over and out…
