“We’ve won a trophyyyyyyyy”
That was the cry from our youngsters on Sunday 8th March when the results were announced after the Band performed “Neverland” by Christopher Bond at the Scottish Brass Band Championships in Perth. We were placed 3rd out of 14 Bands in our Section (we were 4th last year) – and we can’t complain at that. The Band played almost as well as rehearsed but given stage nerves and a faster tempo than the adjudicators wanted, we were 3 points off the winners, Newland Concert Band and 1 point behind Kilmarnock Concert in 2nd place. Both Newland and Kilmarnock were promoted into the 3rd Section and with continued hard work and regular practice that is where we hope to be this time next year.
Here’s a photo showing the Band were pleased with their performance.
