    Yesterday, the main band played their Christmas Concert in the village church. In the intermission, the training band came on, and we did three numbers. After the first, the MD introduced all the players in the training band by name, starting up the left hand side, with the two rows of first and second cornets. When he got to the back row, he looked at the cornets there, and the penny dropped . . .

    The music stands were, of course, set the right height for the main band baritones and euphs, so the MD asked the cornets in the back row to stand, and a row of tiny heads emerged from behind the stands - as they were just tall enough when they stood up . . . so, for the first time, the audience could see them!

    From the audience came a collective "Aaaaahhh!"

    (I think the oldest of them has just turned seven!)

    The Christmas spirit is, thankfully, very much alive and kicking, and long may it continue.
