A concert organised by the Sales and Marketing Committee of the Rochdale Masonic Building Co. Ltd saw more than 150 guests entertained by the 30 strong Greater Manchester Police Concert Band.
The concert was staged in the large lodge room where the audience was enthralled by a wide range music which started with a trumpet fanfare and was followed by both traditional and modern scores. It closed with a rousing rendition of Jerusalem and as an encore the band played the Dambusters theme to provide Tommy Spencer with yet another flying lesson.
Both guests and band members were served with a choice of refreshments at the interval when raffle tickets were sold raising more than £500.00 for the victims of the recent floods.
Building on the success of the evening, the Buildings Committee are hoping to stage a similar event next year, when it is hoped that the Police Band will perform some of their other musical themes such as jazz or swing band configurations.
