We had the bands first ever Hallowe'en concert on the 29th Oct. It was a really fun concert to put together and the Hall decorations were great. As you can see we had a great audience.

The raffel featured Pumpkins, Spider Plants and lots of Treats (sweets and wine!)

The concert started with the march from the film(He-Man and the) Masters of the Universe and was followed by the Overture to The Phantom of the Opera. The Duet The Phantom Trumpeter brought Mikaela Barwick and Tony Saunder - a father and daughter. The Band then set sail on the Black Pearl with as selection from the Pirates of the Caribbean. Unchained Melody made famous by the The Righteous Brothers and brought to whole new audience by the film Ghost featured Eugene Gratwohl on Euphonium. We finished  with quite a challenge, playing Toccata in D Minor by Bach.

The 'B' the played the theme from The Addams Family. This was followed by a suite called Things That Go Bump In The Night. The three piece were Grandmother tells a Ghost Story,
Danse Macabre and Baba Yaga. They ended their performance with the spiritual, Dem Bones.

The main band got going again with Ghostbusters. The Witch of West-mer-lands was beautifully played and featured Gaynor Bevan on baritone. The Munsters featured our Bass and Euphonium section. We then went with some Greek mythology for Go the Distance from Disney's Hercules. Scooby Doo get everyone feet tapping with its catchy tune. We then went a bit jazzy with Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations. The concert ended with the iconic Thriller by Michael Jackson.

We brought both bands back for the encore and got everyone to 'click' along with a reprise of The Addams Family.

Thank you to everyone who came along to support us. We hope you all enjoyed it!
