The Learner and Beginner bands presented their annual Spring Concert last night at Blewbury School. Approximately 40 people took part ranging in age from eight to adult. The Beginner Band opened the show with ‘Hoedown’ which was followed by two spirituals and a hymn tune. The Learner Band performed some of the new music it has been working on this term including ‘Texas Tango’ and ‘Rock Around the Clock’.
We were also joined by children from the Blewbury School Brass Group who entertained their parents with ‘Hot Cross Buns’ and ‘Old MacDonald’.Learner Band players Ben (trombone), Natalie (baritone), George (trumpet) and Jasper (tenor horn) all performed fantastic solos.
Members of the Wallingford Welsh Association also came along and very kindly donated £300 to the Learner Band for the purchase of instruments. Thank you! In honour of our Welsh visitors we finished the concert with a rousing rendition of ‘Delilah’.
