ROSES Lane Ends Flute Band hosted a variety concert in Maghaberry Orange Hall, recently. Aughnaskeagh Silver Band were joined by the pipes and drums of its neighbouring Waringsford Pipe Band to bring a great evening of musical entertainment at a variety concert in Maghaberry Orange Hall last Friday evening (September 25).
The piercing sound of a solo piccolo played by Roses Lane End's Rueben Hanna, further added to the musical mix.
The band was conducted by Gary Shields who also introduced the foot tapping tunes which included, 'Amazing Grace, Mull of Kintyre' rounding off the evening with the popular 'Killaloe' with the audience interjecting at the appropriate times. Rodney Clarke chaired the evening's programme.
Also taking part were the Glen Houston Flute Ensemble (some of which accompanied Sir James Galway at this year's BBC Proms in the Park at Hillsborough Castle); and local bass John Boyd who was accompanied by Robert Yarr, organist of the nearby Ballinderry Parish Church.
Hosted by the award winning Roses Lane Ends Flute Band, the event followed on from the success of the band's centenary celebrations last year. Band chairman Sandy Wilson thanked all who took part and gave a special thanks to all who attended. Conductor Alwyn Totten concluded the evening by thanking the band secretary Roy Wilson who organised the concert.
