Promising Player gets Prize at Pond Concert

Aldbourne Band kicked off its outdoor concert season with a well-attended performance on a warm summer evening last Sunday in Aldbourne.

Over 300 people joined the concert and were entertained by a varied repertoire from both the main band and also the Training Band.

Musical Director David Johnson presented the Nigel Kerton Cup to Benedict Edmondson, for being the most improved player of the year. Benedict, who attends St Johns School, has also just passed his Grade 4 on trombone. He has been with the Training Band since it started in September 2011. Conductor of the Training Band, Janet Roe, said “ Benedict has worked extremely hard to improve his playing ability, and is a credit to the Band”.

The next Pond concert is on Sunday 6th July at 7:15pm. No charge is made for these entertaining events, but a donations bucket is passed to help fund the band performances. Sponsorship is currently being sort to help this Band, formed 154 years ago, maintain its Championship Section Status.

The Band AGM is being held at Aldbourne Memorial Hall on Friday 6th June at 7:30pm and all are welcome.
