Longfleet Guitars Rock at Transmission Concert!
Our Longfleet guitarists gave a wonderful performance at Soundstorm's TRANSMISSION concert yesterday evening! The biennial music hub celebration pulls together performers from all over Hampshire and Dorset to showcase the musical talent of our local youngsters. We signed in at the Performers' Lounge at 2pm and then headed onto the stage for our soundcheck. Afterwards we had a rehearsal with Chris Woods followed by plenty of time to picnic and enjoy the beautiful grounds of Upton Country Park. As the concert got nearer there were some nervous butterflies in our tummies but we knew that we were just excited and couldn't wait to get on stage! The piece we performed was written for us by Chris Woods and was called "A New Sea". It went really well and we got a huge round of applause. Afterwards, some of us stayed to enjoy the second half of the concert featuring bands, orchestras, steel pans, choirs and solo artists. All in all, a great day and an inspiring evening!
