In celebration of the band’s 80th year and Godalming United Church’s 40th year, we joined with Music Kids for a sell-out concert featuring music from each decade.
The start of the season was marked with the launch of the band’s new Christmas-themed CD, The Festive Season, and was completed with a Christmas concert with both senior and youth band.
An unusually busy Autumn season for the band, starting with the SCABA Autumn contest where our percussion section and lead percussionist came away with prizes. Godalming Youth Band put on a well-attended concert at Elmbridge Retirement Village featuring a programme of World War II-era pieces, and the senior band led the town’s torchlight procession and Remembrance Sunday march.
With over twenty years passing since Godalming Band last went into the recording studio, we returned to create new Christmas CD due out later in 2016. Keep an eye out for our launch concert!
Our joint Christmas concert with Godalming Youth Band and Godalming Band always rounds off the season. Also available is a video of Godalming Youth Band playing “You Can’t Stop the Beat”.
Both of our bands have a busy Christmas season, bringing carols and cheer to the high street, shops, surrounding villages and local residential homes.
Godalming is twinned with the town of Joigny in France, and for the very special 150th anniversary of Harmonie de Joigny, the band travelled there, along with bands from other twinned towns for a weekend of music.
After the traditional Last Night of the Proms, Godalming Band close the bandstand season on the following Sunday afternoon.
The band play each year at the Cranleigh Rectory Fete, usually a warm job sitting in the sun!
Combined with Farnham Brass Band, Haslemere Town Band and Surrey Brass, we took to Charterhouse’s Great Hall for a massed band concert, raising over £3,500 for Citizens Advice Waverley. Click on a thumbnail to view the full photo of our joint rehearsal.
