DEAL MEMORIAL BANDSTAND CONCERT 2022
the programme details to give you an idea of the musical content yesterday.
Such a change from the old days when it was all well known overtures
and marches. This is not a criticism - just an observation. Audiences
are no longer often elderly people looking to revive their memories
of service life common to all. The other huge change these days of course
is the use of modern electronics with every player individually ‘miked-up’
with overall control managed from a desk at the rear of the audience
space. Conductors wear ear-pieces and the whole is riveting to witness.
