ConductorCam Shot of the Day

My ConductorCam shot of the day today was taken when I was conducting my band, the Todmorden Community Brass Band. We were playing at the White Rose Archery Fun Day in Hebden Bridge and we were under two gazebos which was to keep the rain off. Trouble is, there was no rain and it kept the sun off instead…brrr!

We played our usual sort of program – a couple of marches, some songs from the shows, some pop songs, some TV themes (Game of Thrones on an archery day…doesn’t get much better than that!). As you can perhaps see from the scores on my music stand we hit a bit of a mellow mood at one point, and we also played Li’l Darlin’ by Neal Hefti.

After a bit of Manhattan Skyline and Volare (done in the Gypsy Kings style) we finished off with Tritsch Tratsch Polka with a bit of comedic tromboning from the Bass Trom.

Looking forward to my next outing with the band when we play at the Todmorden Agricultural Show on 20th June in Centre Vale Park in Todmorden. If you fancy coming to have a listen bring your midge repellent and we’ll be there from about 12 noon until 3pm ish. You never know, we might even be able to squeeze in a couple of requests if you’re lucky!
