Christmas Concert 2013 - MD's Final Fling

  • Print

We returned to the Arts Centre on 8th December for our Christmas Concert and to mark the retirement of Musical Director, Nick Smith. After eight years at the helm, Nick has hung up his white jacket to settle back into a player's chair.

Nick has been a fantastic leader since he took over in a real crisis back in 2005, and in his era the band has enjoyed lots of success in concerts, tours, and contests. We wanted to see him off in style and make our appreciation very clear.

The band was supported by the Evesham Community Choir and presented a programme of old favourites, newer music, and traditional Christmas items to provide the sizeable audience with an excellent evening's entertainment in true Nick Smith/Avonbank style.

Band Chairman Alan Robbins led the band's heartfelt tributes to Nick and his ever-supportive wife Sue as we thanked him for his wonderful service to the band in the last 8 years. He will certainly be a hard act to follow.
