Anyone have any details on results from this contest today?
Seems to have been off the radar of tmp.

Checked on facebook, but no updates from any mates as yet!

All news gratefully received :)

open solo

I know Byron Newton won the euph prize and Daniel Powell won the horn prize.

Both these went through to the final plus James McCabe (cornet) and Lewis Musson (euph) and 2 others who I can't remember. Sure it will be posted soon.

Some awsome performances from Martyn Patterson, Matt White, Jonathon Bates (horn). I didn't hear that many though.

Hope the final goes well!

Jef Vermeiren would go straight through as last years winner, euphmag.

Well done Shirland too! :-D
 
Come on guys-has no-one got the full results!?? Got to say that most of the quartets were not impressed that the results for their section had to wait until after the solo finalswhich are probably still going on as we speak! Very surprised if any stayed for the results-makes the contest less than appealing to re-enter next year after it starting at 9.30 this morning. Quartet section started over an hour late hence the late finish-this will not attract competitors (of whom there has been a marked increase this year) to come in 2011.

maybe with the influx of 'foreign' superstars coming over for the event, it's about time more of the home-grown superstars started throwing their hat into the ring??
Too much to lose? :S

Really enjoyed Sunday's competition - quite a mixed bag in the Adult class especially but some phenomenal playing! Young Daniel Walton was nice surprise in the final line-up, and Jonny Bates gave a great reading. Well done young'uns! :clap:
Can anyone give me the names of some of the cornet pieces played in the adult class? Only came in half way through so missed a few.
The Intermediate class was excellent and the finalists were the right ones IMO, and certainly players to look out for in the adult section in years to come.
:clap:

I am struck by the fact that with all the excited babble about who won what at this event (in which a huge variety of pieces must have been played) there is not a single word about the music.

Can't say I've ever heard them play, Tony.... But the bigger chap on Eb Tuba is some shandy-lightweight from the West Midlands with deparately poor taste in football teams... ;)
