Copthorne Silver Band formed over 100 years ago, and seldom have we faced the challenges brought by the Coronavirus pandemic. Lockdown has made us all a little bit better acquainted with technology and we have been rehearsing virtually for the past 14 weeks. We rehearse for our own pleasure, but also so we can entertain. Many gigs have been cancelled this year, so we decided to bring you our Lockdown Concert.
Recordings from previous live performances, virtual band practices and images from the bands history have been brought together in this 20 minute concert. This Lockdown Concert is dedicated to all the members of the Band past and present. Those who during challenging times over the last 118 years strove to keep our band alive.
If you enjoyed our efforts please donate through https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/copthornesilverband to keep the Band alive and support Crawley Open House.
We’ll make a bonfire of our troubles and we’ll watch them blaze away and when they’ve all gone up in smoke clouds,
we’ll never worry should they come another day
and as the bonfire keeps on burning,
happy days will be returning,
while the band keeps playing
we’ll let our troubles blaze away
Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you at an event in person in the near future.
