"Check out" how much we raised!

Following our fantastic Christmas concert, Northampton Concert Band raised a total of £900 to be shared between Abington Avenue United Reformed Church and Bethany Homestead.

Our chairperson, Colin Giles, was delighted to hand over two, unreasonably oversized, cheques for £450 to representatives from both organisations during our rehearsal last week. (Good luck to the person who has to post those over the bank counter)

The Christmas concert was performed in honour of Harold Colman, former conductor of the band, who was fondly remembered at the fundraising event. Harold resided at Bethany Homestead, with his wife Cathy, in his later years and was a regular attendee at church services at Abington Avenue United Reformed Church.

Northampton Concert Band's next concert will be in aid of  Marie Curie on Saturday, 25th March 2017 , 7:30pm at Church of the Holy Sepulchre where we will be performing music composed by masters of British wind band music in a concert entitled "Spring Serenade", conducted by Graham Tear.
