As part of the opening of the new college campus recently, A "Year of Celebration" has been instigated by the College. As part of this yearlong celebration we welcomed The Band of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment to the College on Saturday 15th November 2014. The day comprised a series of master classes as well as full rehearsal culminating in a combined concert at the end of the day. Part of the music training day was also given over to the college training band who also performed in the concert.
The theme of the day was giving 100% and what that means as a musician in a performing ensemble.
In concluding comments Warrant Officer Class One, Bandmaster Gavin Holden said, "it's one thing to join a team, but quite another to perform as a team member, to put it simply, teams don't work without teamwork. We have seen an incredible amount of team work today; the standard was amazing, well done to you all".
