A real treat

We always look forward to the Christmas Concerts by the Sociedad Union Musical de Bigastro and yesterday's performance did not disappoint.

We started out with the Infant Choir, in front of the band, singing a medley of songs for Christmas.

They cleared the stage to allow the Symphonic Band to perform their programme which started with the competition piece they will be playing at the Certamen this year. As is normal, this is a technically difficult piece to play and will require a lot of rehearsal to get it to the band's liking.

Following tradition, Mr and Miss SUMB danced to Shostakovitch Waltz No 2 and the concert ended with the audience joining in with the Radetsky March by Johann Strauss Sr.

You will find my photo albums from the event in the sidebar and you can listen to the concert here.
