The Lockdown Band (aka the Virtual Band!) have been busy recording a new tune -  Tequila -  accompanied by a lighthearted video using clips compiled from YouTube from in and around Inverurie. 

Hope you like the tune!

The ICB Virtual Band playing A Song for Health

 

“Due to the recent ban on large events in order to curb a further outbreak of the coronavirus, many of us musicians, are left sitting at home bursting with creativity. We used the power of music to support the efforts of our incredible healthcare and public service workers who are at the frontlines of the corona pandemic. There are a number of healthcare and public sector workers within Inverurie Concert Band. It simultaneously raises awareness of the importance of music for society.“

Here is the latest from the committee re the band 16/5/2020

 

Dear fellow band member,

We hope that you and your family are safe during these unprecedented times. The committee have had a meeting regarding how to proceed from here and the outcome is as follows:
 
As you know all rehearsals as well as the Summer Concert have been cancelled for this year. We are considering a shortened performance for charity after lockdown has ended to give us a chance to perform some of the pieces we have been working on. Once we have a concrete time frame we will give you more details about this.
 
Furthermore, as our accounts year goes up to the AGM in August, we have decided to close the accounts now, ready for audit and review by the charity commission.
 
Thank you to everyone who has paid their fees for this term. We have taken the decision to freeze the fees from the point of cancellation and deduct any outstanding amount from next terms fees. For those who haven't paid yet for this term, they will just be charged the full amount for next term, when we are allowed to rehearse again. So far, we are still planning to hold our Christmas Concert.
Hamish has suggested the following link for anyone who wants to keep playing and practising in the the mean time.
 
Please keep practising the pieces we have been working on so far as well, so we can pick up where we left off and get a concert organised when it is possible.
 
We hope that you are keeping active and safe and are keen to let you know that we hope the band will keep on going after this trying time.

We would be grateful for any other suggestions or ideas to keep the band going from strength to strength and support each other.
Keep safe, keep healthy and hopefully we will see you all soon.
