From Monday 15th March 2020, The Cobham Band is following government advice on the Coronavirus pandemic and has suspended all rehearsals until further notice. Our members are being kept informed of the changing situation and we hope to all get back together as soon as possible.
We would like to extend very best wishes to all our members, their families and the wider community during this time.
As usual, the band had a very busy Christmas period to round off another busy year.
Money collected during these events will be shared between the band and our nominated charities Cancer Research UK and Parkinsons UK.
The Band played carols multiple times in Cobham, braving the cold and avoiding the rain.
A small group played carols at Cardinal Newman Primary School in Hersham.
The Band played at two very large services for the Welcome Church in Woking with Carols during the service and other Christmas music.
The main Christmas concert was held in Holy Trinity Church in Guildford featuring singing group Harmonia Voices. Music by the band included The Snowman, The Christmas Song and Gaudete. Music by Harmonia voices included Away In A Manger, We Wish You A Merry Christmas and I Wonder as I Wander. Together the band and singers performed Winter Wonderland and All I want for Christmas is you.
We finished the year with a festive band social event held in Cobham.
The Band played at the Service of Thanksgiving in Guildford Cathedral on 27th October, playing entry music, a fanfare, hymns with the choir and The National Anthem.
