That was so good!
Yes, it's been great to perform before huge crowds on this tour. However, to play in a beautiful lakeside village up in the mountains, where seemingly the whole village turned out was so special. A great reception from the locals and their band will leave very special memories - we MUST return!
Of course, tonight is also tinged with real sadness; the very last performance in HCYB for our leavers. You are all very special people. I have either taught and / or conducted you for many years now - I will miss you all so much! All the very best as you embark on the next phase of your journey - university / conservatoire / employment / gap year etc.
To those HCYB members returning in September - we rebuild & go forward again! Enjoy the rest of your summer and please be prepared to fill some very big shoes.
This has been such a special tour, thank you to you all.
Jock (& Dad to two of the band).
