On October 13th the Band travelled to Elland near Halifax to take part in the Pogson-Bray entertainment contest. Our 20 minute set included Blackbird Special complete with choreographed walk-on. Londonderry Air, a Cornet Solo expertly played by James Kerridge. Wellington March, an arrangement of Coldplay’s Yellow and finally finishing with James Curnows Psalm of Praise.
Although not playing an outright solo the adjudicator picked out our Percussionist Tomas Remblence as having made outstanding solo contributions to every piece and awarded him the soloist prize.
The Band were delighted to be announced as the overall winners.
