King's Lynn Town Band play virtual charity Christmas concert

King's Lynn Town Band are tuning up for charity as they plan to put on a virtual fundraising concert to support causes close to their heart.

The band, which normally would play several live concerts throughout the year, has been forced to adapt after Coronavirus and social distancing measures came into effect.

Elaine Croker, chair of King’s Lynn Town Band, said: "Like many amateur organisations, brass bands have been hugely affected by the COVID outbreak and unable to rehearse or perform. To help keep us motivated, we have been producing isolation videos where we each record our part separately which are then put together to create the full ‘band’ sound.

"Our latest production is an online Christmas Concert, in collaboration with three local vocalists and we hope to raise money from viewer donations for the King's Lynn Winter Night Shelter and East Anglian Air Ambulance."

Elaine added: "We were due to put on a concert hosted by the Catholic Church in March of this year in aid of the Night Shelter which had to be cancelled as the first lockdown came into force so this will go some way towards fulfilling that commitment."
