Blockley Brass Band: A concert of popular music at was held at St George's Hall, Blockley, last Sunday. In a world of highly sophisticated entertainment on tap at the press of a switch and all types of sounds available in the name of music blasted constantly into our homes, cars (and even down the phone when one is 'on hold') a concert of popular music by a good brass band is a truly refreshing experience and a delight to the senses. Blockley Brass Band, resplendent in green and gold uniforms, with their musical director Mrs Williams, cheered up a wet Sunday afternoon at St George's Hall. Compered by Alan Cother, who's father was responsible for re-forming Blockley Brass Band in 1943, the band entertained an appreciative audience with a variety of well known pieces including music from 'Oliver', 'Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair' played on the euphonium by Ann Stoker, as well as 'Kalinka' with its Russian flavour and Lerner and Loewe's 'Wandering Star.' Tea and plenty of cake was served during the interval and a very large raffle kept everyone amused. It was a relaxing way to while away a few hours and highly recommended as a fund-raising exercise for any organisation who wants to raise some cash. Sunday's afternoon's concert was in aid of St George's Hall and the band's funds. If you stayed in with the telly last Sunday, you really missed a treat.
