<b>  1905  Sunday Band Music In Aberdeen 1905: SUNDAY BAND MUSIC IN ABERDEEN. Under the auspices of the Aberdeen Friendly Societies' Council, arrangements have been made for another recital of sacred music in Pittodrie Park to-morrow afternoon, when, by the permission of Colonel W. S. Gill, V.D., and officers, the band of the 1st Aberdeenshire Royal Engineers (Volunteers) will play, under the leadership of Bandmaster W. Stavert. The proceeds are to go to the benefit of the Newhills Convalescent Home. The programme is an excellent one, and, in addition to music by the band will include a cornet solo by Mr J. M. Bryce, an althorn solo by Corporal W. Forsyth, and a euphonium solo by Musician A. Stewart, while a choir of over 200 voices from various choirs in the city will render several choruses, including the Hallelujah Chorus.
