    so what makes a good soloist? is it their persona as artists whose innate talent, hard earned skills and inner core strength of self belief sets them apart or is it just an outstanding sound?

    yeah, i think, inner belief, confidence, presence, charisma and it also helps if you have that sound !

    Unfortunate that these qualities are not present in all the soloists

    Having paid my entrance fee including the obligatory raffle tickets was I disappointed? Well yes out of date CD on sale that bears no resemblance to the current band recorded over 10 years ago when the band was not in their rebuilding stage but at the top their game. The programme was varied if not bordering on the heavy side for the ageing audience even though the cornets were firing on all cylinders. The soloist were consistent with an outstanding rendition of Paragon by Dewi Griffiths it’s a shame the duet Pie Jusu let the band down with lack tone and harsh on my ear. Overall a very good concert but I am left with a feeling of apprehension and despondency.

    ps Frosty’s suit was on the large side possibly more weight required.

    What's your problem with Tred and their soloists? You don't seem to have anything decent to say at all. only 4 posts to your name but 3 out of 4 of those are unpleasant and a tad personal.
