    hey mark

    the ones I remember are Andy King, Richard Brown and Peter Collins from England. I think all the Belgians got through as well and the two german trombone players :? 16 from the 28 qualified though.

    Heard some of the solo competition yesterday. Of those that I heard 4 players stood out for me......

    Raf Van Looveren - Cornet

    Nàndor Nèmeti - Bass Trombone

    Andrew King - Tenor Trombone

    Nick Ost - Euphonium

    My money's on Andrew King!

    Hoping the Bass Trombonist gets through to the final so that I can hear Bill Gordon's 'Spirituals for Bass Trombone and Band' in the concert tomorrow night.

    I know it's Andrew King and I am pretty sure its a sop and a Bb Cornet to make up the 3 for the final.

    Although I did hear the other 2 were quite brill as well.

    Heard the 3 finalists last night. They all sounded very good indeed. It should be very close between the three of them.

    I will be completely biased and say my money's on Raf.

    So it's Andy, Raf and his Sop player buddy! God that will be close, they are three awesome players and i wouldn't like to be judging! Good luck to them all!

    I think it will be extremely difficult to pick a winner from those three. They were all fantastic last night, but each with different qualities. Three completely different styles of music as well. Pity about the tuba player pulling out. I was looking forward to playing that fantastically lyrical piece too :evil:

    The tuba player must have withdrawn due to an 'astronomical anxiety'. Maybe he got the reading of his horoscope mixed up with the synopsis of that papophony.

    I can't get the tuba piece out of my head. I was whistling the tune all last night. I think it is something that we should be playing at Whitburn Gala Day this year. :wink: The prophecy at the end of the piece certainly will come true if we play it again! :evil:

    Hey that was quick and you had a rehearsal tonight with my good pal. :wink:
    Disappointed for Andrew King but well done to all the soloists. I have been told that the last 8 were all quite superb players.
