Mirfield Trinity Methodist Church Concert

Last night the band performed a concert at Mirfield’s Trinity Methodist Church. The church, which has been newly refurbished since our last visit, was looking magnificent and is a delight to perform in.

The concert featured a range of music but, being Remembrance Weekend and to commemorate 100 years since the start of the First World War, there was a distinct wartime flavour. Pieces such as Oh! What A Lovely War, Colonel Bogey and the march 1914 sat alongside popular favourites such as Eventide, Boogie In The Bandstand and Deep Harmony.

Two soloists also featured in the evening. Alan Fernie’s arrangement for baritone of The Carpenters classic Rainy Days And Mondays was superbly played Lisa Pitts as her debut solo with the band. As well as this, Pete Rhodes delighted the audience with Puccini’s Nessun Dorma from Turandot.

The concert ended with a reflective moment as Pete also performed The Last Post.
