Regional Championships, Torquay

On Saturday 11th we competed in the 1st Section of the West of England Brass Band Championships in Torquay.  We were pleased with our performance of Phil Lawrence's 'A Day in the Life of a Knight', and although we were a little disappointed not to finish a little closer to the prizes, we congratulate the bands who did do well - in particular, our neighbours, Chalford who were clear winners on the day after a first class performance.

The trip to torquay also gave us the opportunity to spend some great social time together, and our thanks go out to Julie who arranged the accomodation and meals for us all - a first class job as always!

We look forward to returning to Torquay next year where once again we will be competing in the first section.

Preparations for Torquay

As usual, February sees us busily preparing for the Regional Brass Band Championships in Torquay.  The competition will be taking place on Saturday 11th March at the Riviera Centre, and this year's First Section test piece is 'A Day in the Life of a Knight', by Phil Lawrence.  The piece was originally composed in 1988, and is highly thematic, telling a story in the form of an imagined film score.

We will be performing the piece for the first time at the Oxford & District Brass Band Competition later in the month ahead of our trip to Devon!
