What was the first ever contest you played in? Mine was the Regionals in Scotland 4th Section Playing Bottom 3rd cornet for St.Davids High School. Think it was 92 and the piece was "The Seafarers" if i remember rightly. :shock: I was just wondering what other peoples baptisms to contests were like, reason being that a non playing friend asked me why im so addicted to playing and i just couldnt explain the buzz of my first contest to him so i was wondering if it was just me thats sad?!? Ps i think my band were last that day aswell!!
