When Shepherds went viral…

00NewsTags: , , , , ,

Last Saturday night our Senior Band performed in their annual concert at the beautiful Selby Abbey. The concert itself was a resounding success and both the audience and band absolutely loved it. The programme was a particular hit and included a suite from Stabat Mater, music from the musical Wicked and the roof raising Fire in the Blood.

Richard Wilton, band MD said:

“I think it was the best concert that I have done throughout my entire six years with the band.”

When it went viral….

Bizarrely though the highlight of the concert was what happened afterwards. One of our regular fans decided to film a few of our pieces, one of which was Phillip Harpers exciting new flugelhorn solo Under the Boardwalk played by Paul Stamp. We had a listen to the video and we were so impressed that we decided to publish it on our social media and it’s safe to say its gone crazy. The video has, in under a week, reached 60,000 people and has been viewed significantly more times than the Cory Band equivalent!!

Paul Stamp, the bands flugelhorn player said:

“I actually can’t believe it, it’s just crazy, so many people keep messaging me, people that I haven’t spoken to in years! I’m absolutely delighted that people like it so much.”

Richard also commented:

“Everyone absolutely gave it their all and the reaction on social media to the video is just brilliant… we’re all buzzing!”
