Yes, we did it again! We have now won this contest 7 times in a row. Well, almost in a row as the contest has been cancelled twice due to covid restrictions. It was great to be back on the contest stage again, with lots of competing bands. We used this contest as a “run out” for our forthcoming European Youth Championships contest in a few weeks time in Birmingham, which gave us an opportunity to show what we could do with the test piece – Simon Dobson’s “A Brief Symphony of Time”. A really challenging piece for any band never mind a youth band, but we took it head on, & thanks to Chris Jeans’ amazing direction & encouragement, the adjudicators loved it!
Hopefully we’ll have a few pictures soon.
