After a great result at the 2014 Areas in March, April brought our first own-choice contest of the year.
For Holme Valley contest each band selects a hymn tune and test piece, and our choices were St Clements and Suite Gothique.
Everyone in the band really enjoyed working on the pieces, so to be declared winners for both the hymn tune and test pieces individually was a fantastic result. As well as being overall winners, we received prizes for the best trombone section, best percussion sections and a prize for Rob as outstanding conductor. We’re now working on future concerts and contests, with lots of hard work and enjoyment ahead this year.
