Congratulations to all Academy members who took part in the competition in Norwich recently.
The contest was split into four sections, the under 18 slow melody, the senior slow melody, the air varie and quartet groups.
The contest adjudicator was Mr Glyn Willaims , a very experienced musician who currently plays for the Cory Band.
Entering the under 18 slow melody were Ellie Bould playing cornet, Edward Frazer- Brown playing bass, and Saffina Frazer-Brown playing trombone. Congratulations to Ellie who came first, and Ed for his 3rd place.
In the Senior (very senior) slow melody, was Antony Sanders on euphonium, who achieved second place.
Tendring Brass Academy entered the Quartet class with Ellie Bould, Ed Frazer-Brown, Saffina Frazer-Brown and William Huddlestone. The quartet, all under 17, due to lack of entries in the Junior section, entered the Senior section of the class…. AND WON !! a fantastic achievement.
