Band travels to Coventry
On the 24th September the band travelled to Coventry for the weekend. The purpose of the trip was to play a concert for the Cornish Clay Miners who hold a reunion annually. This year they had taken over the Royal Court Hotel in Coventry. The band were asked to play a concert on the Saturday night consisting of a mix of brass band favourites and a second half containing many of the Last Night at the Proms favourites including Jersualem, Fantasia on British Sea Songs and Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance No.1.
The band stayed in Coventry overnight and joined the Cornish group for a harvest festival service on the Sunday morning followed by a concert containing traditional Cornish tunes. Some of these were performed with the Mid Cornwall Male Voice Choir.
The whole weekend was an overwhelming success with an appreciative crowd of approximately 350 people watching. The band are set to repeat the effort in Coventry for the Korean Veterans Association in late October. For more pictures of the weekend look on the gallery web page.
