    Why don't you all stop wasting your time and money going to contests and just play your choice of music to concert audiences at times of your choosing? You'll find that concert audiences will applaud your efforts, they will be generally encouraging no matter how well you play, they will pay to listen to you, and any technical or musical deficiencies in the performance can safely be left to your Musical Director to address after the event. He will have a far better idea of what went right or wrong than a complete stranger whose attention is being constantly diverted from the performance by the need to write notes, whose critical faculties have been deliberately impaired by the need to sit in a wooden box, and who is likely to be less familiar with the music than the people he is listening to. A no-brainer, surely?

    Because it is an acceptable outlet for our sado-masochism?

    Or is it saddo-masochism??

    Either way it is good fun. Mostly.

    Shine as the Light may not be a scaba listed piece but it's not easy....as we proved by coming 7th so really whether it's on the list or not is totally irrelevant!
