Parkhead SA

 16th - East and West Scotland Summer School Fundraiser @ Parkhead SA @ 7pm

TThe band provided a festival of music at Parkhead Salvation Army to help raise money for the East and West Scotland Summer School. Parkhead hall was almost full on the night, so the evening managed to raise over £300 for the Summer School.


The programme highlights tonight were the band's playing of the classical Salvation Army piece The Kingdom Triumphant, the devotional piece Wonderful Healer and Alex Ramsay's sensitive playing of the beautiful cornet solo Don't Doubt Him Now.


The programme got off to a great satrt with the march The Southern Cross, and this was followed by an arangment of the song Breathe. After the band played The Call of the Gospel, we were reminded that God is there for us no matter what we are facing as Daniel McMillan sang the vocal solo He Will Carry You. Chris Shanks then treated us to some excellent euphonium playing in the solo The Better World.


As the evening was in aid of Summer School fund, it was fitting that Claire Ferguson spoke of her experiences of both Music School and Summer School and how they had influenced her life.


 This was followed by the band playing Servants of God before the home section, Parkhead Songsters added to the programme with their two excellent songs. The band then concluded the first half of the programme with the SA classic The Kingdom Triumphant.


After a short interval the band got the second half of the programme off to a great start with Swingtime Religion. The congregation then got a chance to sing after that, in the congregational song He Is The Lord. This was follwed by the band playing The Name.


The next few items were presented as part of the devotional period of the programme, and included Amy McMillan playing the piano solo Sonatina 2nd Movement (Leighton); challenged by words associated with Alex Ramsay's cornet solo, Don't Doubt Him Now. Following a short message from David Kendall, the band concluded the time of reflection with Wonderful Healer.


Following the vote of thanks by Parkhead Bandmaster Dan Wray, the band finished the programme with Fusion followed by The Prayer.
