On Saturday 21 April the NASUWT Concert Band enjoyed an evening at Sunderland Yacht Club for St George’s Day.
Under the baton of musical director Andrew Hall, the band performed a varied programme which included music from West End shows, The Beatles and their most recent test piece Ex Terra Lucem.
Soloists Shirley McCrae, Saffi Hutchinson and Julie Wells all did a sterling job in their interpretations of My Love is Like a Red Red Rose, Over The Rainbow and Share My Yoke.
The concert concluded with Proms-themed music which certainly went down well with lots of singing and flag waving from the enthusiastic audience.
It was great to see new members Kelly Armstrong and Lyndsay Thompson on cornet and Martin Humphries on bass for their first concert with the band.
The band can next be seen on Sunday 29th April 2018 at Holmfirth Civic Hall. Here the band are contesting in the Holme Valley Brass Band Contest.
