    open section

    No highly commended award given
    2 outstanding performance,
    in the adjudicators words for 2 very different performances.

    Guildhall for traditional performance
    Cornwall for playing with no music and choriography
    We await the classified ads in the bandsman nest week!!

    BRASS BAND REQUIRES CHORIOGRAPHER
    AN ABILITY TO TAP DANCE WHILST PLAYING Eb BASS AN ADVANTAGE
    BUT NOT ESSENTIAL, INHOUSE TRAINING WILL BE GIVEN

    am i correct when i say Greater Gwent also won last year playing Kongolela, unconducted, without music, and choriorgraphed!, please correct me if im wrong

    In connection with other results Abraham Darby won the Highly Commended in the Schools Brass Band Section. They also won their 4th in a row (5th in 6 years) Outstanding Performance Award in the School Wind Band Festival. Northampton School for Boys and Smithills Concert Band got the Highly Commended in the same class.
