Sainte Cecile is an amateur brassband.
last sunday they performed Concerto For Group And Orchestra for a sold out house.
At the end they received a well earned standing ovation.

At their Facebook site you can see / hear the 3rd Movement plus the encores Child in Time and Smoke On The Water.

Yes I was there.

I didn't know what to expect from a brass band. My brother in law plays in one and I must say I wasn't to keen on their performance.
At the last moment I decided to go, as did many other fans (judging the crowd by their looks and outfits).

Sainte Cecile started with 3 (to me) unknown pieces. It was great, unbelievable.
After the break they performed CfGaO.
In one word: Amazing.
That goes for the brassband, conductor and the musicians of the Group. Most of the Group are music teacher.

As encore we got Child In Time (only the Group).
As second encore we got Smoke On The Water (Group and Orchestra). Everybody giving everything. The way the conductor stood before the orchestra and singing along SOTW was epic to see.

You can see CiT, SOTW,3rd Movement and several other snippets on their Facebook.
If there was a dvd release I would definitely would buy it.

I think Jon would be very proud if he had seen it (maybe he did emoticon )

Thanks dp344. Excellent performances by everyone. I especially liked the Hammond player.
