In June this year the band visited the Braunfels wine festival for several concerts (well, it seemed a good reason for us!).

Solo Cornet forms a Duet!
Sadie Jacklin, one of Hyde Band's front-row cornet players, got married to Elliot on 21st July, forming the perfect duet. It was a terrific day, and members of the band joined the brass band playing at the wedding (which was conducted by Sadie's Dad!). Sadie looked poised and beautiful throughout the day as can be seen from the photos below - Elliot is a lucky man! Hopefully in the future their duo may become a trio or a quartet?
The whole of the the band would like to wish Sadie and Elliot the very best wishes for the future, and we look forward to welcoming her back into the bandroom after the honeymoon!
The band has a Facebook page - please visit and say something nice!
The band will be holding it's annual AGM meeting at 8PM on 12th February at the normal rehearsal location at Trafalgar School, Downton. All are invited to attend.
If anyone wishes to add an item to the agenda, please write the band secretary no less than 2 weeks before the meeting.
The band is busy preparing for the Christmas concert on 23rd December, and has moved the rehearsal location to the barn venue in Gorley.
We will play a range of festive music with something for everyone, including several solos. There's also going to be lots of audience participation as the band will be playing the Snow Waltz (lean left, lean right stand UP, sit down!) and the 12 days of Christmas as well as plenty of carols.
I can almost smell the hog-roast now! Roll up, roll up for the bar!
