Kingsbury Episcopi Band

Notices from Thursday 7 March 2019

The band wished Hilary and Valerie happy birthday in the usual manner. Many happy returns to you both!

We also welcomed Rachael on Percussion, Jo on Tenor Horn and Adam on Trumpet, all of whom will be playing with us on our CD and attending practices in the run-up period.

CD Recording

The recording of the CD will take place on Saturday and Sunday (both days), 6 & 7 April at Barrington Village Hall (TA19 0JE). In preparation, the previous two practices will be held there, but on Fridays instead of Thursdays (as the hall is booked out on Thursday evenings). This means that practices will be on Friday 29 March and Friday 5 April in Barrington Village Hall at the usual time (no practices on Thursday 28 March and Thursday 4 April). There will also be an additional practice on Sunday 17 March in the band room at Langport from 2-4pm – please do try and make it if you can.

Feedback

“The band playing was exceptional this year, and many have commented on the really good mix of carols and popular music.

Once again, huge thanks for playing for us again.”

“Just a note to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all of you in the Band for the great event on Sunday. We thought that the Band was on absolutely ‘top form’ and excelled in all aspects of the music.”

“I just wanted to officially thank you all for the wonderful performance you put on for our Street Fair. It isn’t official yet but I believe this was our best year ever for fund raising. Thank you for being a part of that. I say it every year and every year I mean it, when I say Drayton Street Fair wouldn’t be the same without you. It’s the music that lends the day its particular vibrance, I believe.I hope you all enjoyed yourself and that we’ll see you again next year.”
