Beckenham Concert Band will be presenting an evening of music in aid of St Christopher's Hospice. The programme will include music from the musicals 'Oliver', 'Grease' and 'Hairspray', music specially composed for concert band by Gustav Holst, Norman Dello Joio and Clare Grundman together with some favourites by Glinka and Robert Farnon.
The Beckenham Concert Band is celebrating 40 years of music making in and around Beckenham. Formed in 1977 by Ken Messenger, the Band is made up of a range of local amateur and professional musicians ranging in ages from 10 to their 70's. The members play for enjoyment, developing their musical skills and to raise money for local charities. Concerts range from local churches to bandstands in Eastbourne and Broadstairs and performances in Germany and Normandy.
