On Sunday 4th October, the band and their Director of Music, Major Tony Smallwood, were delighted to be invited once again to join their long-time friends, the Milton Glee Club Choir, in concert at the Guildhall.
A performance which was entitled Sing!! included a pleasing contrast of choral solos by the MGC Choir and their guests, the Bath Chorus, and a notable number of joint items with band accompaniment.
In these the band provided a fitting balance and, when required, real sensitivity as well as performing significant numbers in their own right.
These included Tony’s own Victory in Europe march, Mac McDermott‘s symphonic tone poem for band The Seafarers, and the spectacular Farr arrangement of the Bach classic Toccata in D Minor.
The band now looks forward to rejoining the choir for their Christmas Concert on Sunday 13th December also at Portsmouth Guildhall.
