With the year drawing to a close the LCCB has been looking forward to our annual Christmas concert. It is a slightly informal affair, as we celebrate not only Christmas, but also our achievements for the year of 2015 too. We had been carefully honing our skill under the eye and baton of our musical director Ben van Kleef, and were all keen to play the last performance for the year.
The performance was a success with many laughs and Christmas cheer. We played an hour set, including sing-a-longs of some well loved Christmas carols and a guessing-the-country game on our rendition of Jingle Bells Around the World (with several short jingle-bells-isk sections in styles such as German waltz, Chinese pentatonic and Russian Polka).
There was also a short awards ceremony for the players and thank yous to Ben van Kleef and the NR Conservatorium, and the draw for the Christmas Raffle.
We had a great evening and we hope our audience did too. The LCCB wishes you all a very merry Christmas and a musical New Year!
