Christmas Concert and Christmas Fair
06.12.2009 - Christmas Concert was a family concert held in the gymnasium at Torshov. This was the third time the organisation has combined having a concert and exhibition with fundraising. So successful it was, that we have now decided that it should continue to be a yearly tradition. There was more than a full house, people sitting on stairs and many stood along the walls on both sides of the auditorium, you would be lucky to have got a seat! The Junior Band had the honour of opening the concert and there were many "new parents" who had to wipe away a small tear. They played so beautifully and spreads so much joy. The concert lasted for 2 hours, during the break we were selling Christmas decorations and other Christmas things. Of course, there was lots of hot coffee and Christmas cookies to go around. At the end we handed out many awards, some for 25 and 30 years of service in our organisation, as well as gifts to thank the service of other members.
Junior Band
September 2009 - The images are taken during a winter practice for new member of the Junior Band. Elin and Burger, our instructors undertook the enormous task of teaching the new musicians their respective instrument. We were very impressed with their first individual lesson they have, just to get the sound in the big horns is difficult and they achieved it with ease.
