Strike up the Band

A concert was held in Panbride Church by Arbroath Instrumental Band and the Arbroath Instrumental Youth Band on Friday 2nd Nov 2012 :

Both bands performed as part of their contribution to the new kitchen programme. The audience was entertained to a varied performance, opening with a lively and spirited arrangement of James Swearingen’s Valero by Scottish horn player Sandy Smith.

Moving through Benedictus, The Impresario, Hey Jude and the Second Waltz from the Jazz Suite.

A resounding rendition of the Magnificent Seven brought us to the Interval.

The Youth Band began their programme called Marching Through the Movies and on to “Let me entertain you” which they certainly did.

An evening full of excellent music culminated with a melody of the 10 most popular hymns given the surrounding we were in. A wonderful finale.

The evening was compered by Rev Matthew Bicket with his usual witty banter and vote of thanks was given by Lyn Ross.

Our grateful thanks to Mike Robertson and Ann Ness who conducted the bands and all the members of the bands.
