    I heard that it might be Year of the Dragon also. Not sure how many agree with me but I think that would be a tremendous choice for the 1st Section.

    If not that I would love Dances and Arias!

    He's a bass player. He'll be fine.

    Year of The Dragon would be a stonker.

    And we'll be roomies at Harrogate, stay up late, drink beer, tell ghost stories and in the morning, I'm making waffles.

    I am likely to be illl on Friday as despite the advice of my doc, I went to band with this chest infection last night and consequentially am struggling to breathe today. Therefore, I will be sat waiting for the announcement, patiently hitting the old refresh button.

    Ok, it's high, but it "sits" right on the instrument, and it's not really that hard - try "Elaine" from Tintagel (Denis Wright) 3rd section area 1997 (I think) - that's really hard!!

    Mr Fernie is being a bit modest here - he played that solo with Kirkintilloch at the Europeans in 1986 (good God, that long ago?!) and made an absolutely brilliant job of it: I've got a recording of it - a really sweet assured sound on what is a pretty tough solo (no matter what he says!)
