LAST NIGHT OF THE PROMS              

Meltham Parish Church

15th October 2016

 

This years Annual Proms Concert marked the ‘debut’ of the new M D Tim Sidwell, in which he helped produce a most entertaining programme delivered in a competent and often humourous style-  Well done M D.

After struggling somewhat with the Overture; The Force of Destiny, the band settled down to present some exciting sounds in James Bond Collection and Shostakovich’s Second Waltz followed with a most moving Snell arrangement of You’ll Never Walk Alone.

The band items were interspersed with a quite remarkable contribution from Guest vocalist ‘Maggie Lowe’ who delivered her varied solos with real panache!

Prior to the finale the band played my favourite piece A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square followed by the traditional ‘Proms’ favourites with Sea Songs, Pomp and Circumstance and Jerusalem in which the band were joined with Maggie and audience for a rousing finale.

This was a fine climax to a well chosen and presented programme- a most enjoyable evening.
