    Newly crowned West of England 3rd Section Champions, Verwood Concert Brass have announced plans for a Junior Solo and Quartet Contest in Verwood on Saturday 12 July 2008.

    Contest organiser, Nigel Tiller commented “The band have a thriving training band full of enthusiastic youngsters but felt that there was a lack of local competitions available for them. The aim of this contest is to encourage those younger players who perhaps are about to or have just performed a Grading exam to get a taste of competition.”

    The contest is aimed at school years 4 to 11 with special sections for a junior hymn quartet, adult and junior duet and an open quartet.

    Nigel said “This will hopefully be the starting point of a successful junior competition for members of local training bands that can be developed for the future.”

    Local bands will be sent information and further details will be posted on the band’s website
