05/03/2011 Hyperbaric Charity Concert

In October last year, the band gave a concert at Abbey Church, Ballasalla, as a fund raising event for the Hyperbaric Chamber. The concert also featured Manx Choir, Caarjyn Cooidjagh. The concert consisted of Manx brass band music, arranged by the late Major J E Thirtle, former Musical Director of the band and Manx songs performed by the choir.

The evening saw a wealth of local music, rarely performed these days and the audience had a most enjoyable evening. At the end of the concert, the ladies of the Abbey Church served a Manx Tea in the hall which was appreciated by all.

Rodney Evans, the Bands Musical Director said that it was good to support local organisations, and particularly such a vital facility as the Hyperbaric Chamber. Many members of the band have been treated at this facility, and have benefited greatly. The evening raised a most creditable £395, plus a further donation from an audience member, raising the total to £400.
