BSB Brass Festival

On Sunday 10th September 12 of our players performed in 6 sections of solos, duets and ensembles at the Second Annual Bletchington Silver Band Brass Festival.  It was nice to see a few more of our more advanced players taking part as well as entries from our Training Programme.

 

Adjudicator (and friend of the Band) Dave Taylor was treated to 7 solos, 3 duets and 2 trios over a morning of music where our performers, supported by family and friends, performed everything from nursery rhymes to Beethoven.  The standard of playing has improved immensely, even from last year’s competition, and we were able to divide our soloists/duettists into sections by ability – from members of our Senior Band down to learners who are still having one-to-one tuition.

 

Everybody played really well but there had to be winners so our President presented prizes to:

Olivier Masseglia (Advanced Solo)

Della Dawe (Improvers Solo)

Megan Selway (Beginners Solo)

Chris Meek & Lynsey Dawe (Improvers Duet)

Jane & Olivier Masseglia (Advanced Duet)

Sam Payman, Jane & Olivier Masseglia (Ensemble)
