A brass ensemble from the Solent Fellowship Band (Bandmaster John Bird) supported the Southern Division Adult and Family Rally at Ferneham Hall, Fareham on 11 October 2012.
The ensemble from the Fellowship Band played short programs of light music, in keeping with the occasion, before the two sessions, and enlivened the sessions with the performance of marches. These included Praise Party (Stephen Ponsford) and Eric Ball’s classic Star Lake in the second session (taken at lightning speed). Many of the ladies in the congregation relived their days playing timbrels to the sound of this grand old march.
Music played before and in between sessions included All in the April Evening, Fill the World with Music, Light Up the Sunshine and ’Mid All the Traffic.
