Farnham Concert – The Great Hall (The Maltings)

CoDs  Band at CTC Spe 2011Sadly and without wishing to sound too negative, it was felt that the band deserved a much larger audience than the one that attended this concert. More so as it was our very first visit to Farnham plus we had the added attraction of the Royal Marines Corps of Drums from the RM Band HMS Collingwood joining us for this event us too!

None the less, the good people who attended were not in any way disappointed as they were given excellent value for their money once again.

As you will see from the programme insert below, we produced yet again, quite a varied and packed programme to just about cover all tastes! :-

Therefore, it was good to see that although the numbers attending were not as large as we have recently come to expect, they more than made up for that shortfall with their tremendous enthusiasm, reactions and applause.

I’m quite sure, (judging by their comments on exiting the foyer), they would all like to come again next time but perhaps bring along a friend or two! – Not only to swell the ranks of course, but to enjoy with them our brand of music too! In fact, no one should ever be disappointed with the fayre that we have to offer!
