The band had a fantastic day at the Stanley Brass Band Entertainment Contest today, coming a very creditable 3rd place for playing and 5th overall. Our amazing soloist today was Nicola Evans on Flugel playing Children of Sanchez and she did a fantastic job too.
Today's programme was:
A big thank you to our deps today Beth Marston on Soprano Cornet, Jeremy West on 2nd Horn and Karen Snaith on Percussion. You were all amazing and we really appreciate the time you have given for rehearsals. We also welcomed back one of our own. James on Trombone is back up in Durham for the new term at the university and we were pleased to see him back in the band hall.
A big thank you to all our band members for their hard working preparing our set and to Colin for leading the way at his first contest with the band.
