Christmas Concert with Burneside Brass
Our First official engagement of the 2011 Christmas Season was to host our Christmas Concert which we held at St Thomas’ Church in Kendal on Friday 2nd December. We were joined this year by the school choir from St Thomas’ School.
The concert was opened with the March Barnard Castle and then we performed a varied programme of music to the audience. The programme included Christmas carols sung by the School Choir from St Thomas’ School, Film themed music, Christmas music, the Tenor Horn solo Over the Rainbow performed by Sally Walker and the Cornet Trio Buglers Holiday performed by Debbie Caine, Graham Hartley and Dave Higson.
