Family Christmas Concert
Last night we enjoyed another successful Family Christmas Concert under the direction of Deputy Musical Director, David McClintock. The Senior Band and Youth & Community Band performed to a large and appreciative audience, making weeks of preparation worthwhile. We now focus our attention on the Haverhill Civic Carol Service held in St Mary’s Church this Wednesday. See our events page for more details…
Christmas is coming…
The Band (alongside Haverhill Youth & Community Band) are looking forward to kick-starting the festive season next Sunday, where we’ll be showcasing our annual Family Christmas Concert at Haverhill Arts Centre. This is always a popular event, so be sure to buy your tickets as soon as possible!
The Band is proud to be a part of the service of remembrance at St. Mary’s Church, Haverhill, this Sunday at 3pm.
The Youth and Community Band is already working hard for the Family Christmas Concert, with the Silver Band, at 4pm on December 3rd, at Haverhill Arts Centre.
As is the tradition, Haverhill Silver Band will be at St Mary’s Church on December 6th at 7pm. On 17th December is Carols For All, with Haverhill and District Operatic Society, which for many is a highlight of the musical year. Old Independent Church, Haverhill, 8pm.
Players from both bands will also be carolling around Haverhill in the run up to Christmas.
After 18 years at the helm, Mark Ager has stepped down as Musical Director of Haverhill Silver Band. Mark has overseen the most successful period in the band’s long history, which has culminated in Haverhill Silver establishing itself as a championship section band. As well as numerous contest successes helping to raise the band’s profile nationally, the band under Mark’s leadership has continued to build its reputation and the support it receives locally through its regular concerts and civic engagements. Band Chairman, Tom Walker, said “Mark is leaving the band in a very strong position going forward and I know everyone would like to thank him for his many years of hard work and dedication as our MD”. The band is pleased to announce that Paul Filby has agreed to take on the MD role following Mark’s departure.
