Does he have any suggestions for other sections?
thought I would add a rumour for the Areas
Championship - The Torchbearer
1st Section - London Overture
since opening an online gambling account I have increased my investment by >50% :D
wits dulled after a couple of pints, mmmm. Do you have much personal evidence of this? Personally it takes a...
interesting idea, rather than, or at least as well as, leading worship playing in the band could be see/used in an outreach role.
I can't think who you might have been thinking of Dave.
But for what it's worth, I didn't drink out smoke whilst a senior soldier and bandsman in the SA.
My reasons for leaving had nothing to...
I've been away for a couple of weeks and returned to my band tonight - I was rubbish
I'm no good at practicing on my own so I'm looking for any band in the Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire,...
I've followed this thread with interest so I thought I'd put in my view.
I've played primarily in brass bands for 40 years (gulp, am I really that old?) and have played a little on orchestras,...
Any band out there short of a bass trom for Whit Friday?
Or EEb bass if necessary.
PM me or email Steve.email@example.com
1. The last one I played in
2. The one before that
The regional committees are free to re-balance sections, Midlands did this last year (or maybe the year before ?) to rebalance 3rd/4th sections
and how do you decide the relative standards of the bands?
maybe a contest held every year and then perhaps look at the last 3 years?
the 1st section is way too large, 3 down 2 up for a few...
Commission new test pieces in all sections for the next Areas
Monday's and Fridays for us
Spread apart with time to digest the previous rehearsal also we have our own band room with a bar for apres band relaxation
I hate wearing the old 'lion tamer' jackets.
They look old fashioned (at least 100 years out of date)
They are uncomfortable to wear (made to measure but unfortunately they didn't measure me)...
I was in a discussion about the pros and cons of open and closed adjudication and a very week known conductor was against open adjudication because it is impossible not to judge with your eyes and...
If we don't trust our adjudicator we might as well give up.
They do their best to give a honest opinion.
Give them a break.
Is that what you were after?
Drawn first on Saturday, came 6h.
A bit disappointed
Can't edit the post so I'll add some info.
In 13 years we have been drawn in the 1st half on 5 occasions, of these 5, 3 have been our worst 3 results taken as a proportion of the number of bands...
Another slow day at work so I've been having a look back at previous Area contests for my band.
Over the last 13 years (best data I could find) it is quite clear that our best results have come...
I think we have one in the cupboard, if you can pop along Mondays and Fridays it's yours to use for as long as you like !
with the demise of Paddy Flower (what happened there?) is there any form of prediction contest/comparison/bit of fun for the Areas this year?
so quite a few (every) band could be in trouble in March then?
I dint think I've ever played at a contest where none of the parts were modified without the permission of the composer/ arranger
