Elland Silver Band Summer Celebration
Elland Silver Band are celebrating their return to LIVE music making in spectacular fashion with two evenings of music making on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th July at Halifax Minster.
Celebrations will start on Friday 9th July at 7.00pm featuring the members of the Starter, Training and HIT IT Percussion groups. The young musicians will perform a selection of pieces which they have been working on over the past few months since rehearsals commenced following the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Saturday 10th July, 7.30pm will conclude the celebrations with performances from the organisations championship section senior band, directed by Daniel Brooks and the multi-award winning Elland Silver Youth Band and the Elland Community Band led by Sam Harrison.
The events will celebrate a return to LIVE music making in the Minster and the band’s first official concert since March 2020. Thanks to the support of Halifax Minster all the organisations band’s have been able to rehearse in the Minster both inside and outside, making full use of the wonderful grounds.
“The partnership with the Minster over the past few months has enabled the band to return to music making. Music brings such joy to our members, and whilst we’ve continued to make music remotely through recordings and online rehearsals, there is no comparison to LIVE music and hearing the sound we make together,” Musical Director, Daniel Brooks.
Both events will give all our musicians the opportunity to share their music with a LIVE audience and help to raise funds for the band and the Minster.
“It’s been wonderful to hear music being played in the Minster once more, and a delight to hear the chatter and enthusiasm from the musicians in rehearsals and I do hope you will join with us and our guests to celebrate together”, Reverend Canon Hilary Barber, Halifax Minster and Elland Silver Band President.
