    Other soloists were
    Daniel Alexander - New South Wales - Euphonium - Euphonium Concerto (Cosma)
    Amanda Casagrande - Queensland - Flugel - Weber's Last Waltz (Rimmer)
    David Chaulk - New Zealand - Trumbone - Sonatine pour Trombone et Piano (Casterede)

    Paul de Cinque - Western Australia - Trumpet - Carnival of Venice (Arban)
    Alexandra Kerwin - GB - Cornet - Slavische Fantasie (Hohne)

    Alexandra performed really well, I had her picked as my winner.

    ** Quartet Championship **
    Waratah Brass won.

    ** Band of the Year **
    Waratah Brass won from
    Gunnedah Shire Band
    St Marys Band Club Brass Band
    Sutherland Shire Brass
    Willoughby City Band

    Mark Ford was the adjudicator for all events.

    The "Band of the Year" competition will be available on DVD. However there are were a lot of noise from the audience during the contest, most noticibly baby screams. (the solo and quartet event won't be on DVD)

    It's what happens when a trumpet and trombone mate. Watch out for the other cross-breed, the trompet.

    When my Dad used to do Old Tyme Musical, one of his frequent party pieces was to play on a trumpet fitted with a clarinet mouthpiece - you've guessed it, the CLARUMPET :wink:

    Just making a correction to the list of performers at the Ern Keller. Mark Fitzpatrick from Victoria also performed the Haydn Trumpet Concerto. For some strange reason I was left out of that list given on here!

    Thanks for the vote of confidence Ted and hiya Mark, it was good to see you.

    I was very pleased with the way I played, I even wore a dress (my goodness!!) But anyway, congratulations to Kevin Joughin.

    I had a fantastic time in Australia. I played a solo concert with Waratah Brass which went really well and I also played with them in the Band competition and won with them, which was nice.

    By the way, St Mary's Band Club is some place, amazing.

    Cheers Okie as well :lol:
