After a festive Christmas fundraiser concert at the beginning of December, members from BCWB, Blown Away! and Winds of Change were out spreading Christmas cheer!
On Sunday 10th December players from BCWB helped with accompanying the carol concert at St Peter's Methodist Church in Brislington, which is also where the band rehearses every Wednesday. Later on Thursday that week, Blown Away! performed two pieces as well as accompanying carols at Above and Beyond's Christmas Star Concert at Bristol Cathedral. With an audience of around 700 it was a very moving event to hear about the great work the Bristol City Centre hospitals do and the efforts Above and Beyond go to to raise money for them, as well as being a fantastic opportunity for the players of Blown Away!
On Saturday 16th players from all three bands came together to play carols and Christmas songs in Asda in Longwell Green, and we entertained commuters at Bristol Parkway the following Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
If you heard us over the Christmas season we hope we lifted festive spirits, and thank you very much for your generous donations!
To members, audience and supporters, have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and hope to see you at our events in 2018!
