Aldbourne Band - David Johnson returns!

On Saturday 8th October the Aldbourne Band competed in the finals of the National Brass Band Championships at the Royal Albert Hall. They finished in a marvellous 9th place out of 20 bands, achieving their highest ever position in this competition in their 156 year history.

Accompanying the band and their families was a separate coach of supporters from the village who heard the band’s stunning performance of the test piece “the Journey of the Lone Wolf” under the musical direction of David Johnson. It was an historic day for band members and supporters alike, one which will be remembered for many years. Aldbourne is one of the highest ranked village bands in Great Britain.

The Aldbourne Band are next in public the weekend of 21st – 23rd October when they will be hosting a Conductor’s Course, again under the direction of MD David Johnson. On the Sunday afternoon at 5:00pm in St. Michael’s Church, Aldbourne there will be an end of course concert when all 8 attendees will introduce and conduct a piece they have been studying over the weekend.

Tickets are £5 for adults with children free and will be available at the door. Wine and soft drinks will also be served.

For other information please visit the Band’s website or contact Janet Roe or James Sheppard. All contact and address details are shown below.
