along with Jennifer Westcott and Hilde Senior

During the performance there was a great deal of audience participation which was a good indicator that music is really enjoyed at Avalon School.
David Marshall, on behalf of the Boys, accepted the thanks of Head Teacher Alison Murkin and Gemma Mounty, Music Teacher,
for both our visit and the donation made to the school of £600 for music projects. An experience to be remembered by all present.

Matinee Performance
for Butleigh School

A near capacity audience of the pupils at Butleigh Primary School were entertained by the Brue Boys conducted by Jennifer Westcott and accompanied by Hilde Senior.
The programme consisted of ‘When the Saints’, ‘The Trolley Song’, ’John Kanaka’, and ‘Hand me down my Silver Trumpet’.
All were chosen to provide the opportunity for the children to participate and they certainly took that opportunity!
After benefiting from a ‘warm up’ directed by Jennifer they joined in with great gusto.
An enjoyable experience for the children and for the Brue Boys.

Matters arising from 2017....

Souvenir Journal
There are still some spare copies of the 40 page, A4, full colour
Souvenir Journal to celebrate the First Ten Years of the Brue Boys

- these are available at £10 each from Treasurer Roger White.
We will donate all profits to our local good causes
and the project is already in profit of about £100.

New Piano
Hilde Senior enjoyed playing the new piano in several late 2017 rehearsals
- the quality of the sound makes a huge difference and Hilde looks forward to its first outing on 17th February during the Baltonsborough Concert.

The photo right shows Nick Llewellyn enjoying setting it up!
