VE DAY 70th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT - Swing Orchestra

The Doncaster Youth Swing Orchestra has been invited to perform at Pontefract’s historic Town Hall. The Swing Orchestra will proudly perform a varied programme of music from the Swing era of 70 years ago, alongside Big Band classics of today. This will include the music of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Frank Sinatra and many more. Military memorabilia and iconic pieces are a feature of this historic building. It is therefore fitting that a VE Day 70th Anniversary Concert is to take place in this wonderful venue. The main Concert Hall is an 18th century architectural gem and is maintained with great care and justifiable pride. All proceeds are in aid of the Pontefract Dispensary and the Hermitage Restoration Project

Notes for the band:

It is unusual for us to have next year's Exchange dates confirmed in advance of Christmas like this, but it is intentional. August is the traditional holiday period for many families, so I am informing parents of our plans as soon as possible in the hope of avoiding date clashes. I am delighted that students have already put their names forward for selection, as have several of our voluntary staff members/Registered Chaperones. If there are other members who wish to be considered, pleased contact myself or Brenda Procter asap. No selection has yet been made, so the door is still open! Thank you. John Ellis
