Once again many thanks to Phoenix Rotary for organising the annual concert at Ossett Town Hall. 

The Band came up trumps with a varied programme including their first public performance of the test piece 'Darkness Visible'. 

The entire programme was well received by the select audience, and the Band rounded off with an encore of 'Jerusalem'. I suspect this may have been just reward for listening to yet another test piece, Gregson's 'Patterns'. 

I am sure our MD Duncan will have something to say abut the Band's performance at rehearsals tomorrow and Sunday/Monday after he has listened to his recording, but the audience were well pleased with their performance. 

Especially well received was David Lepley's rendition of 'Bombastic Bombardon' as a break from his erudite compering of the show.  Thank you David.

The National Championship Finals are nearly upon us and we are sure that the whole village will be wishing us the best to bring home the glory for Horbury. 

For those of you unable to attend in Cheltenham, the Band will be performing the Test piece 'Darkness Visible' by Richard Grantham at the Rotary Charity Concert in Ossett Town Hall on Friday 9th September at 7:30 pm.

HVB Christmas Cards available!


Band President Ted Andrassy has kindly arranged a reprint of these popular Christmas Cards produced in the past by the Band's David Andrassy.  They are available priced £1.80 each (with envelope) - please contact Arnold with your orders.

The inaugural Friends Concert was well attended at the Primrose Hall tonight.  The Band under the sparkling direction of Duncan Beckley gave a rousing rendition of their new repertoire.  The Hall was an excellent venue with acoustics which enabled us all to hear clearly both the Band and the announcements shared by Duncan and Charlie Welch (Principal Cornet), who had been 'persuaded' by the MD to help him out!

We hope this is the beginning of a long association of the Band with the 'Prim'.
