Summer Concert 17th July 2017

The band will be holding its annual Summer Concert at Ecclesbourne School at 7:30pm on Monday 17th July.

Many of our supporters will remember that for our Christmas concert we were joined by a children's choir conducted by the very gifted and generous Chris Toon. Chris is a local musician who is an inspirational saxophone teacher and has done a huge amount of work to promote love of music for young people.

Sadly Chris was involved in a serious mortobike accident recently and has been laft paralysed. Instead of having the usual charity raffle at the Summer concert, the band requests that people consider donating to a crowd funding group which hopes to provide Chris with a specialist wheelchair.

The crowd funding site for Chris Toon is

Chris Toon wheelchair funding.

Concert entry is free.
