INDOOR MUSIC GAMES & SALTSTOCK 2018

We have to offer huge congratulations to all of Team Concord for the very successful day in Sheffield on Saturday 28th April. The afternoon saw Blue Street Brass, Concord AllStars and the Bin Men give outstanding performances at IMG South Yorkshire, where it was great to welcome our friends from Glasgow, the Blue Barons Mini Corps, A-Plus DrumLine and, of course, the Ecclesfield School Choir.

The evening saw another superb James Salt promotion with a frocking night at DINA featuring six top class acts and a wonderful evening of celebration and fun.

We are very interested to receive any feedback on the IMG event from participants, organisers and audience which will help us feed back to the national IMG Board and prepare for future events.

CAN YOUR EMPLOYER HELP US ?
Many companies and organisations have a “Community Fund” which will donate to good causes (like Concord) especially if one of their employees is an active supporter of the group. Does your employer do this? Have you asked? It can just take a question to open the doors. Sometimes they will sponsor things like t-shirts of brochures, etc to get their company name out there. If you need any supporting material, we have some specially-designed information sheets and, of course, our shiny new AllStars flyers (see below). Make the ask – today !
