So, after weeks of hard work on Kit Turnbulls’s excellent piece ‘The Golden Sabre’, and a 2nd place in the Second Section at the Brass at the Wire contest, we headed to the regional contest in Blackpool in good spirits.
After a great rehearsal in the Rose and Crown (well, the rock club over it!) , we were ready.
Drawn 7th from16 bands, we went on stage and delivered a performance that the band, MD and even the composer were very happy with (he took time out to join us for a drink and told us so!)
5th place was the result, a little disappointing, but we had achieved what we set out to do. We are now promoted to the 1st Section from January 2021!
Well done to all who put so much work into the performance. Live the Dream!
