    Having just performed our annual Charity spring Concert to a full house I am interested to know what other 3rd/4th Section bands include in their concert programmes?

    I'm talking about an indoor (theatre / church ) full concert type event, and lets assume you have a free reign (no themes or other requirements) to choose what you wish

    Any thoughts would be welcome

    We are a 1st Section Band but we play for the audience knowing full well it is ok on the ear for them and entertaining plus popular wich most of the audience have heard at sometime or other.
    We do play bigger pieces Barbarian Horde etc but we keep these back for a Major Concert which we do in Burton Town Hall where we get a 85% turn out.
    The music listed is not in order of what we played but it is what we did.
    Hope this helps you;)

    We don't do many proper indoor concerts, but some of the pieces that we've played recently that have gone down well with the public are:

    Ray Woodfield's Ragtime Number and Walkabout,
    Born Free,
    I Will Follow Him,
    Hey Jude,
    Colours Of The Wind,
    Always On My Mind,
    Something Stupid,

    Mission Impossible is good if members of the band can count to five! :rolleyes:
