On Saturday 9th March, the band participated in the Midlands area regional contest. We had worked hard at rehearsals practising the music and knew we would be competing against some very strong bands. Every
though there were a few nerves and the occasional split note and a couple of tuning issues, overall the band were pleased with their perfomance, and we were awarded 11th place which is an improvement on last years result and maintains our position in the 3rd
section of the grading tables.
Our feedback from the two adjudicators was mostly positive and their closing comments stated ...
'Overall some good flowing
music at times, but was spoilt by middle band tuning. A good attempt at dynamics.'
'Overall, a performance with many musical touches, but let down by some untidy
moments in terms of togetherness and flow. Please make more dynamic contrast to improve performance.'
So we know what we will need to work on over the coming year to further develop the standard of the band.
