    Saturday 8th October saw Corsham Brass Band hold their annual Solo & Quartet competition. 53 entrants and performers aged 10 - 50 competed fiercely for cups and medals in the 11 classes under the watchful eye of Shropshire adjudicator Steve Pritchard-Jones.

    The contest was again very well supported and a particularly good entry of young brass players was evident this year. A number of players traveled from Upper Rhonda in Mid Wales and Rochdale near Manchester. Regular supporters from the Shipston and Upper Rhondda Bands had an excellent day and took a number of the prizes.

    National adjudicator Steve Pritchard-Jones said “the standard was one of the highest he had witnessed in recent contests”.

    “It was again really pleasing to see a local contest getting such support and everyone enjoying themselves, which made all the hard work by the Corsham band members so worthwhile” said band contest controller Nick House.

    Due to relocation the Corsham Band are currently looking for a new conductor and would welcome enquiries. Rehearsals are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings’ 7.45pm at the Pound Arts Centre Corsham. All players are welcome, just come along or visit our website Contact Marilyn Kinch 01249 - 760741.
