Wasn't overly impressed with NCT's Cops and Robbers interpretation but Mr. Lippeatt seemed to like it, so who am i to commen?t!! Highlights of the evening were NCT's Amazonia (I think Windows of the World is a great piece anyway, but it was well executed), Stannington's Strike Up The Band and Ridding's Checkmate. Great evening's entertainment, well done all!!
