The British May Be Coming! As many of you know, All Saints’ has hosted the Concert Band from St. Peter’s Collegiate School in Wolverhampton, England three times. For those involved, this has been a rewarding and exciting experience, and many of us have made lifelong friends and have made the journey across the pond to see these friends on their home turf. Their last visit to us was in 2010, and that is sufficiently long enough for me to have forgotten how much work is involved in making this happen.
That said, I recently heard from the band director, Toby Barnard, about the possibility of their coming back, since their students keep asking when they can come back to the land of the yellow school bus. I told Toby that I had one more Wolverhampton visit in me. Stay tuned, and feel free to let me know if you would be willing to help make this happen. No dates have been mentioned. Maggie Marshall
