From 16:00pm to 17:30pm
The Internationally award-winning XBY Concert Band was formed in 1989, when a group of Bromley Youth Concert Band Alumni wanted to recapture the quality music making they enjoyed in the BYCB. Since then, the band has performed in and around London and has toured extensively, gaining first prize in several competitions in the UK and Europe. It is formed almost entirely of past BYCB members, some of which are in the music industry but most of whom have gone on to work in other fields such as accountancy, law, consultancy, teaching, banking and software development proving the point that music can be with you for life no matter what career you end up in. Since its formation, the band has been fortunate enough to be under the skilful leadership of its conductor, Dennis Mycroft, who taught most of the players when they were still in the Bromley Youth Music Trust. With an age range of 18-50+ it is a true testament to the BYMT’s legacy; it is the members’ common interest in music and support for this organisation that brings so many different generations together at rehearsals, concerts, tours and many a raucous social occasion. In fact, the current Principal of the BYMT, Ian Rowe, is a member of the band, and XBY is delighted to see one of their own take the helm of an organisation that is so important to its players. Sing Bromley Adult Choir Sing! Bromley is a daytime adult choir run by Stephanie Seeney. Open to all ages and all abilities, the choir sings a wide range of music, but focusses on popular music and showtunes. Over the last year, the choir have sung music such as Mr Blue Sky (ELO), an Oklahoma medley, Chicago the musical, Somebody to Love (Queen), Budapest (Ezra), and the Best of Broadway. The choir also sing some light classical pieces by composers such as Rutter and Chilcott.
