Following from last year’s recording of Hymn To The Fallen, this summer, Nene Valley Community Band with guests from Abington Wind Band recorded an arrangement of Abide With Me at St. Matthew’s Church, Northampton
We hope you enjoy this tribute to all those who have lost their lives in conflict
Last November, Nene Valley Community Band, Open Stage Choir and guests from Abington Wind Band, Potterspury Big Band and Grafton District Scout Band recorded Hymn To The Fallen (theme from Saving Private Ryan) at St. Matthew’s Church. Here are some pictures from the day, taken by Andrew Ponting.
The Band have decided on a new logo. This logo represents that the band is made up from people from various ages, communities and musical experience, that none of us are perfect (hence the blurry edges) but that we are all centred around music.
Many thanks to Donna Rowan Gold for producing our new logo – watch out for it at a concert near you!
Nene Valley Community Band are excited to be headlining our first concert at the Deco Theatre, Northampton.
Together with special guests from Abington Wind Band, Potterspury Big Band and more, we will be bringing the music of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks to the auditorium where they played nearly 60 years ago.
Nene Valley Community Band and Open Stage Choir are pleased to present this special recording of Hymn to the Fallen with guests from Abington Wind Band, Potterspury Big Band and Grafton District Scout Band.
This Saturday, Nene Valley Community Band and the Open Stage Choir , along with additional musicians from Abington Wind Band will be making a special recording of Hymn to The Fallen, the theme from Saving Private Ryan.
We will be sharing the recorded video hopefully in time for Remembrance Sunday, watch this space!
