The band continued their 175 anniversary celebrations with another great concert at Thwaites Empire on Friday 6th November conducted by David Hamilton. The program featured pieces going back to the 1840's through to the present day with some fantastic solos from Boonyarit Kittaweepitak on euphonium, Jeremy Fonseca on trombone, Robert Speakman on soprano and Richard Cookson on Eb bass. The future came in the form of St. Bede's Community Band who performed in their very first performance since the band was formed some 2 years ago. What a delight it was to see so many youngsters on stage thoroughly enjoying themselves, they were superb. Well done to their tutors and conductors Alan Thomas, Allyson McManus and Daniel Thomas leading the way to make sure the future is bright!
