Sunday 12th October 2014
Last night, Sunday 12th October, all three Lions Bands performed a joint concert with Roberts Bakery Band at Sandbach School. While once a regular event this was the first time in a number of years that a joint concert has been organised by Lions Youth Brass and Roberts Bakery Band. Despite this being only the 2nd concert of the new school year, with many new players and players in different playing positions, all three bands gave excellent performances which gave an idea of what the year ahead will produce.
The end of the first half featured a mass band piece along with players from Roberts Bakery Band. In the second half of the evening Roberts Bakery Band delivered an entertaining programme which was very much appreciated by the sizeable audience.
There has always been a very close working relationship between Lions Youth Brass and Roberts Bakery Band and this is demonstrated by the fact that in the order of 11 Lions Youth Brass players, musical directors and tutors are either current or former Roberts Bakery Band players. So one day the very young new Lions Youth Brass players may very well be playing at the standard heard from Roberts Bakery Band.
Let hope this joint concert once again becomes a yearly event. Photos of the evening can be found at Lions Youth Brass with Roberts Bakery Band
