Can anyone confirm that Errollyn Wallen has been comissioned to write for the NYBB before.
I seem to remember something about a car.
Was it called 'Chrome' or something similar??

Correct. Premiered at Harrogate International Festival 5 (?) years ago. I know 'cos I was there. Sounded good in performance but EH was tearing his hair out in rehearsal over problems with the parts.

Very enjoyable concert last night... well done to all who took part... even ended 4 minutes before 9.30! :p

Good to see a few familiar faces afterwards as well, including Neil Twist and also Sarah aka drummergurl... (I noticed you didn't call me old g*t mate ;-))

First of all I would like to congratulate all the kids on an excellent concert.

But most of all I would like Kate (Blue Smarties) and other friends in the NYBB for taking care of Vickitorious throughout the afternoon and evening.

As many of them were aware, Vicki’s day started off by being rushed by ambulance into the Manchester Royal Infirmary suffering from bouts of severe chest pains. She underwent all the usual tests for heart problems but was very quickly and thankfully diagnosed as having costochondtritis, an inflammation in the cartilages where the ribs join the breastbone. She was given pain killers and after an hour’s observation was sent on her way.

With the panic behind her, Vicki was desperate to get back to the hall and to get on with rehearsals, leaving us somewhat bewildered (who, what, where how?). Seeing her sat on stage and smiling away sure as heck made the whole performance all the more enjoyable. Well done Kiddo.

well, i knew nothing of this, but i saw vicky at various points throughout the day, and she was looking great to me.

Anyway, was anyone else from nybb there who is on here?

by the way, passacaglia in C(bach, arr. snell) was amazing!

lol haha yes it probably should have been the first thing i said to you but at that point in time i was absolutely shattered and wanted to sleep so it didnt cross my mind until you mentioned it then. i think its the only time uve seen me run, and take note of it its a rare occasion. anywayz i had to run further than neil coz he got on the back of the bus and i had to go to the front of the bus luckily i made it on the bus b4 my name was called out in the register so i saved myself some embarrassment there!

c ya saturday!

yeah there was about 10 names read before mine when i got on the bus so i was alright and didnt miss the bus, nice seeing ya!! although if i had got on the back of the bus our conductor would have noticed me gettin on a little later than every1 else, coz i would have had to get past her on the stairs to get to where i was sat. so get on the front instead and save confrontation with conductor!
