  1. Saturday night entertainment

    Posted on

    The evening kicked off with a real treat; a number of previous HCYB members formed an ensemble for the evening aided by Jock and Mark.  The former members have all gone on to study music...their playing was an inspiration to all who had the privilege to enjoy it.

    Various children impressed us with their entertainment skills; comedy, non-band instruments, singing, conjuring, light swirling....the variety was very impressive.  Sadly not all photos came out well, so below please find the photos that worked.  The website editor aims to enhance the quality of some images taken so you can have a taste of some of the performances.  These will be posted up in the next few days as a post blog post script.

    There were also a few fun and games including a competition organised by section.  

    The winners were: 1) Solo cornets 2) Euphs and Baris 3) Tuba

    The evening culminated in a gothic game of "can you guess which body part is in the labororatory parts box so we can build a new conductor?". Surprisingly the James Bond baddy (with cat) was revealed as the master of our newly created Build Your Own Conductor model.  It was quite a story so there are a number of photos...do you think one of the conductors was peeping?
