    Area Test Piece Preview Evening

    I would like to say a big thank you to the bands and their Musical Directors that took part in the Area Contest Review evening held at Newstead last Sunday –

    Matlock Band
    Long Eaton Band
    Newstead Youth

    The above bands were guests of Newstead Brass, each band entertained the audience with a hymn tune and then their area test piece.

    John Roberts was the official adjudicator and he prepared comments for each of the bands together with selecting the recipent of the best soloist award. That award went to Clive Purnell who is the soprano cornet player with the Long Eaton Band. John also addressed the audience regarding each of the performances.

    A capacity audience stayed for the evening to listen to each of the bands. Hopefully the event gave something to each of the bands and following the success of the event we are planning the same for next year as soon as the date for the Midlands Regional Contest 2008 is known.
