The audience for this year's concert was probably at least as large as for the 10th anniversary concert in 1999 (c.4000). The weather was warm and sunny, although a little windy, and people brought their lunch to the green (some even brought picnic tables).
The program was varied, with contributions from the Big Band as well as the Concert Band and the Corps of Drums. Music included works by such diverse composers as Cole, Sousa, Miller, Mancini, Elgar and Lloyd-Webber.
