Our participants travelled to Norwich on Sunday 7th May to take part in the East Anglian Brass Band Association Annual Solo and Quartet Contest.
In the Under 18’s we were represented by, from left to right, Ed on Eb Bass, Ellie on Cornet, Saffina on Trombone and Lillybet on Tenor Horn
We are delighted to announce that Ellie came 3rd and Edward won the winners cup.
Congratulations to everyone who played in this group and especially to these two for gaining a prize.
The next class was the Air Varie Open class for adults and under 18’s. Both Ellie on Cornet and Bob on Bb Bass took part and did themselves very proud with solid performances of some very tricky music.
In the Quartet class we were represented by our Under 17’s, who were competing against four other adult quartets.
On cornet was Ellie aged 15 on Cornet, Saffina aged 12 on Trombone, Edward aged 14 on Eb Bass and William aged 11 on Cornet.
Wow what a performance they gave us. They were deservedly awarded 2nd place – a remarkable achievement.
Some Supporters and participants stayed on to hear the amazing sounds and talent of one of the World’s leading Brass Bands, Brighouse and Rastrick at The Halls in Norwich.
A great way to end an day full of brilliant music making.
