The band enjoys a good relationship with Lealands School and this was evident again with the enthusiastic reception it received last evening.
The band were under the temporary leadership of Bandmaster Iain Parkhouse (Croydon Citadel) as our own Bandmaster was unable to be with us due to work commitments.
On a very warm evening the band presented a varied programme to packed school hall audience. A copy can be viewed here.
Iain Parkhouse compered the programme, providing thoughtful insight to the items.
The band shared the programme with Lealands School Choir who presented 4 songs under the leadership of their Head of Music and our own Maurice Patterson including Anthem from the musical Chess which they are presenting in July. The choir gave the band a very enthusiastic reception and particularly enjoyed Just A Closer Walk featuring Andrew Wright and Gavin Mann.
