We've played in Forbury Gardens in Reading several times now, and each time the audience grows! Last Sunday was no exception.
This year our conductor, Robert Roscoe introduced Dave Brubeck: It's About Time to us and our listeners, together with a generous selection from Fiddler on the Roof.
We had something for everyone: with Holst's Second Suite in F; The Simpsons putting in an appearance from TV; a really exciting rendition of Pirates of the Caribbean; and the seductive tango, La Cumparsita.
We even attracted a few dancers!
Of course, there were many other pieces too, but what I don't understand is why, with the sun providing full support, no one took advantage of The Stripper: perhaps it needed even more brass than we could supply?
