The band returned to the Menuhin Hall in Cobham for the annual Autumn Concert on November 15th. The theme for the evening was ‘Big Band’ and featured the some of the music of Glenn Miller.
Music played included American Patrol, Pennsyvania 65000, Tuxedo Junction and In The Mood. Soloists included Ben Lewis on trombone playing Can’t Take My Eyes Off You and Simon Larter-Evans on cornet playing Sugar Blues and I Know Why (and So do You).
In the second half our conductor Glenn Hayter came on stage wearing military uniform identical to the type that Glenn Miller would have worn in the 1940s.
The bandsman of the year award was presented to Brian Haynes. Brian joined the band around 50 years ago and has attended almost every rehearsal and engagement since!
On stage were the cups and certificates the band has gained over the year as well as the bandsman of the year award.
