    RNCM Festival of Brass 2012

    I've done the whole weekend of concerts before now but the sad fact is that this year I just couldn't justify spending nearly 100pounds to go to everything, and that's just the tickets. I did attend the Fodens concert though which was exceptional from start to finish. A real contrast of styles...

    National Finals 2011 - test piece rumours

    Vienna Nights is a great piece. But I know we've done it twice recently when it was the Open and then Grand Shield piece a few years after. maybe something different? I haven't heard Journey to the Centre of the Earth played out for a while ;)

    National Finals 2011 - test piece rumours

    Some new commissions from up and coming composers would be nice. Simon Dobson did a great piece for the scottish last year and I know Ben Tubbs piece for pontins (i forget which section) a few years back went down pretty well with bands. When do they announce the pieces for the nationals??

    Paddy's Yorkshire Area - 2011

    Definately not bitter towards the winners and nothing about my original comment indicates that. Hammonds are an exceptional band that would have taken some beating on the day, and will definatley hold their own against anything the top section throws at them. I was answering another post that...

    Paddy's Yorkshire Area - 2011

    4barsrest are not the BBC unfortunately. They do not have a charter that means they have to be impartial. At the end of the day all that matters is what the adjudicators thought and if 4 bars rest don't want to agree with the guys with years of musical experience between them then they are...

    Paddy's Yorkshire Area - 2011

    Yorkshire area comittee has just sent out an updated gradings table that removes Yorkshire co op completely. Means it isn't so cut and dry now. Also 13 bands in the top section and 9 in the first, really?

    Butlins 2011

    I bet you are gonna make a killing. If you win its 19 pints if you get a member of every band never mind the fact that there are 25 members of a band to make multiple bets with..... You are gonna have one drunk weekend.

    Favorite Trombone Solo?

    Heard "Dick Turpin’s Ride to York" played by Nick Hudson a few years back. That was something special. Never could get all those notes myself though :)

    Scottish Open Results

    F1 is not an average of the placings over the season though, F1 is an accumulation of points based on placings. Over the course of that season Lewis Hamilton gained more points because he finished more races in the higher places to gain more points. With regard to a three judge system...

    Scottish Open Results

    For the results from scotland they have been very open about there system. In the example you have provided 2,2,2 would beat 1,1,4 if 4 had been simon dobsons placing. They average the same but more weight would be given to the band awarded 2nd by Simon Dobson whether the other band had more...

    Never Too Old

    You want to see an american football band go and see the Ohio State Marching Band. They aren't called "the best dam band in the land" for nothing.

    Spring Festival 2011 Test Pieces Announced

    Wow. Yorkshire Imps to be playing a piece commisioned by Yorkshire Imps 25 years ago. I can't say i've ever heard Prisms so i'll have to dig out a recording off someone.

    Where are they all?

    I have seen pieces recently that have provided both treble and bass cleff parts for the 1st and 2nd trombones so it is happening just not over all music. I was very lucky in a sense that I learnt bass cleff notes from playing the piano so whilst I can read bass cleff it just takes a while for...
