British Airways Band Concert

Wokingham Methodist Church 14 November 2015

In November a ‘full house’ thoroughly enjoyed the annual visit of the BA Band led by their highly entertaining Musical Director, Captain Neil Skipper.  An excellent and diverse programme ranged from two brilliant solos on Cornet and Xylophone by Paul Douglas and Ray Northcott, to the nostalgia of the timeless Glen Miller.  We finished as usual with our own ‘Last Night of the Proms’, and the whole audience on their feet waving their flags and teaming up with the band.  As Catherine so well expressed it in her vote of thanks, it was a fabulous evening with a band that so clearly enthused the audience with their own enjoyment.  As a bonus the concert earned almost £1500 for our Charity Fund.  Roll on 2016.
