Last year we were bathed in sunshine, this year, quite the opposite…. rain. The concert was moved from the normal outdoor venue to the club house.
The residents of The Springs are so lucky not only to have a residence in such a beautiful park, but they have access to a huge modern, well-appointed club house. The band, formed up in the end of the room with a large audience in front of us. As usual, the first half comprised of a concert of light music, to warm the audience for the anticipated Proms in the second half.
With Jacob once again at the helm, the second half got under way with The Dambusters, just to warm both band & audience up. Then it was Last Night of the Proms all the way. The audience really got into the spirit of the occasion & sang heartily & waved flags to all the standards, Jerusalem, Land of Hope & Gory & Rule Britannia etc & the band really appreciated the audience participation.
The band were on a high after such response & we had many really nice comments from both the audience & The Springs management.
All we can say is…… see you all next year.
