Friary Guildford Brass Band Concert 2015

Saturday 21st November saw a second visit this year, and a fourth visit in all by the Friary Guildford Brass Band for a traditional Brass Band Concert.

The Concert was once again sponsored by the Ash and Blackwater Valley Rotary Club and all proceeds from the concert are to be donated to the Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance.

The concert in total raised in the region of £1,500 for the Air Ambulance, and Ash Parish Council would like to thank everyone who contributed to this fantastic amount.

The Friary Guildford Brass Band was once again under Musical Director and Conductor Chris King, and played many different types of music from film scores, music from the musicals and many traditional music scores.

The 1st half of the concert started with a Gavorkna Fanfare. This was followed by the likes of Spitfire Fugue and Nessun Dorma. Mention must also be made of the wonderful solo performances by Lauren Straker (My Ain Folk) and Chris Straker (My Grandfathers Clock). The first half concluded with Diversions on a Welsh Hymn Tune.

Before the second half kicked off Keith Smith a representative from the Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance gave a short briefing on the work of the Air Ambulance. The second half of the concert then started with the very evocative theme fromIndiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. The concert was rounded off by the very lively Malaguena

Cllr Nigel Manning thanked the Band, the members of the Ash and Blackwater Valley Rotary club for sponsoring the event and also provide car park marshals and refreshment makers, and finally the audience for coming.
