A popular Radlett wind band are inviting residents to their Christmas concert to kick off the festive period.
Phoenix Band’s Christmas Concert, which will feature a variety of music including favourite seasonal tunes, is set to take place at Christ Church, Watling Street, on Saturday, December 4.
The band dresses formally during the first half but joins in the holiday spirit in the second half.
Doors open at 7pm and admission is £6 adults, £4 concessions, and children under 16 go free.
Light refreshments will be on sale during the interval and all proceeds from the concert will go to Keech Hospice.
The band say players really missed helping people in Radlett start their festive season last year and that they are pleased to be back again this year.
Phoenix Band’s musical director, Chris McGinity, said: “We perform concerts regularly, often in conjunction with local charities and other community groups. Keech does fantastic work helping local children with terminal or life-limiting illnesses and their families.
“Our links to this particular charity were strengthened when the grandson of one of our most loyal supporters benefited from the charity’s support.”
The band, which plays a very varied repertoire, rehearse in the Vision Hall, Christ Church, on Thursday evenings between 8-10pm.
They welcome enquiries from brass, woodwind and percussion players who are around Grade 6/7/8+ standard and have some ensemble experience, or who feel they might be suited to a band that strives for a good standard of playing.
