Report on Tenbury Teme Valley Band’s 2019 Annual Summer Concert

Music for a Summer Evening (Charity Concert)


It was a magical evening at Tenbury Ormiston Academy when Tenbury Teme Valley Band entertained a wonderful capacity audience at their annual charity concert. The band delighted everyone with a varied repertoire of pieces. Among the many highlights were solo performances by Mansel Leake (trumpet) and Laura Pocknell (clarinet).


The bands’ guests included an excellent appearance by local adult choir, Choral Diversity, who performed an impressive selection of songs, conducted by their talented Musical Director- Beth Melling. Further entertainment was provided by primary school choirs from Tenbury and Cleehill and a group of older children-‘KJ Performance Company’. The choirs were conducted by a very lively Kevin Bryant and their enjoyment and enthusiasm was very evident.


The event raised nearly £700 for two local charities-Matt’s Mission, which raises money to provide holidays and wishes for children who have a life threatening condition, and The Pamela May Trust, which has built a specially adapted narrow boat to enable disabled and disadvantaged groups to experience a special canal journey.


Musical Director of Tenbury Teme Valley Band, Mary Smith, said, “It was an amazing evening and everyone gave a fantastic performance to a very appreciative audience. I am so proud that we have raised so much money for such good causes.”


The band’s next local event will be a concert at Coreley Memorial Hall on Saturday 28th September at 7.30 p.m. Band rehearsals will resume on Saturday evenings at Tenbury Primary Academy from 14th September starting at 5.30 for the ‘Academy’ and 6.30 for the main band.
