Busy summer for Blackwell band

Posted on May 27 2014 at 3:10:17

Blackwell Concert Band has just embarked on an incredibly busy 2014 playing season, performing on most weekends during the summer.

Highlights of this year’s events include entertaining cider and beer drinkers at Bromsgrove Beer Festival and being part of the newly relaunched Bromsgrove Festival. They will be opening the festival on Saturday June 14 with a surprise performance somewhere on Bromsgrove High Street!

The band is again supporting the ever-popular Music in the Park events, entertaining people on the bandstands in Droitwich, Bromsgrove, Evesham and Worcester parks on various dates throughout the summer.

Other highlights include recording their second CD, featuring popular film music, and hosting a charity concert in November.

Blackwell Concert Band is a huge supporter of Macmillan Cancer Support and has, in the last two years, raised more than £3,000 through charity concerts and collections at different events. This year they hope to break through the £4,000 barrier.

Last November, the band hosted a musical evening at St Andrew’s Church in Barnt Green with all proceeds going towards supporting this very worthwhile charity. Look out for details later in the year of a similar event.

The band is always on the lookout for new players (all abilities and instruments welcome). Please contact Vicky Stock (Band Secretary) at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or on 07845 897760.
