The Salvation Army Citadel in Boscombe played host to Vintage Brass Band's main event of the year - the Spring Concert and was delighted to welcome Romsey Male Voice Choir to join them in a fantastic concert." One of the best" was one of the many accolades received by band and choir members and their respective musical directors. The musical selection was eclectic with songs and instrumentals ranging from Gershwin to Simon and Garfunkel and ending with two pieces from popular songs of World War 1 - commemorating 2018 as 100 years since the end of that war.
