Friday Night Is Music Night was the first concert held in the new Bellshill Salvation Army hall, on 25 April 2014, featuring the Bellshill Band (Bandmaster Yvonne Ferguson) and the Callander Chorale (Musical Director Ian Milligan).The Callander Chorale, an all-female vocal group, provided a wide variety of music with something for everyone to enjoy. They included traditional Scottish music, music from the shows, secular music and music from the Salvation Army. In addition, members of the chorale presented a vocal solo, a vocal duet, a violin duet and a French horn solo.
The Bellshill Band started the evening with the march Temple 125. Items during the concert included Servants of God, Dance Beat and Such Love. To conclude the time of reflection, the band played a new arrangement of the Gowans and Larsson song They Shall Come from the East. The night finished with the benediction The Prayer.
All of the items presented were of a high standard and were well-received by the crowd. It was clear that everyone who had made the effort to come out on a very wet night had thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
