September 2017: Last Night of the Proms

DSC 0850On the 23rd September we held a "Last Night of the Proms" concert in Forres Sandle Manor School in Fordingbridge. The concert featured a guest soprano singer, Elizabeth Ferrie, who sang several pieces accompanied by the band, singing during the first half "World in Union", "The Sun Whose Rays" and "Pokarekare Ana" following in the second half with "O Mio Babbino Caro" and LNotP favourites "Rule Britannia" and "Jerusalem".

The gallery photos show that the concert venue was adorned with plenty of Union Flags and other red, white and blue decoration.

The band would like to thank Elizabeth for a superb performance which was very much appreciated by the audience and band alike - we are all looking forward to next year's concert!
