    Wonder why? Where were the auditions held?

    Indeed. Not what they once were by all accounts. Shame though. I'm not surprised by the lack of members from London. Perhaps this is mirroring the areas that actually concentrate on youth in Banding? Hence the Cornish contingent!
    These issues have been raised elsewhere in the forums, so I won't elaborate further here!!

    Congratulations to all who have made it.

    Glad you said that... don't think I'd have been brave enough given the reception praise for the banding in Cornwall got previously! Still, bravo to Kayleigh and Zoe! (Nothing will compare to the catering at Cornwall Youth though, right??! Er...!)

    Yeah, well done to Kayleigh and Zoe! :D :clap:

    Also well done to Zoe Alexander...I noticed that Soundhouse had a good rep player when I was listening at the areas, and obviously, I was right!! :D
