    Its on 16th November at the Theatre Royal, St. Helens. Test pieces in all sections own choice from anything composed or arranged by Eric Ball.

    Details were posted on 4barsrest a couple of months ago.

    I think it's usually the same date as Spennymoor (16th of November). It's usually set works, but this year they're doing own choice Eric Ball pieces. I think Rainford band run the contest usually, so it is probably them you have to get in touch with. Hmmm... that was rather unhelpful of me really. No real info! :?

    At the moment we have a choice of two.
    Our MD says we can vote on in on Friday and then he'll tell us which one we're playing :?

    We are undecided, might be Journey Into Freedom or A Kensington Concerto, think we have some more stuff to look at as well , then roll a dice.

    Do you think it is wise to post the test pieces you are playing in an own choice contest? Who knows if the adjudicator is reading this!!!
