Today saw the band compete in the 3rd Section at the Buxton Brass Band Festival.
The chosen test-piece was “Tam O’Shanter’s Ride” by Dr Denis Wright and the adjudicator for the Section was Mr John Berryman.
They took to the stage and gave an impressive performance of such a difficult piece, to which Mr Berryman awarded the band 3rd Place.
A fantastic achievement to accompany the news that after a re-shuffling of the Sections, the band will be competing in the 2nd Section as of 1st January 2013.
A quote from the adjudication remarks reads:
Excellent Solo Contributions
Good Dynamics throughout. Some lovely musical moments in this performance.
Congratulations to all the other prize winners today.
A good day all round!!!
