I'll be there on Sunday and especially looking forward to hearing the bands play their own choice selections! Or will I be going home disappointed?!

I think you could well be disappointed. :wink: That seems a pretty poorly written article all round with a few typo errors too. And the term "belt out" that they've used - twice! Surely we "perform" not just "belt out" our test pieces. :rolleyes:

At least they managed to get the bit about the Pennine Brass Festival about right, although they missed the bit about Roy Newsome commenting on the 2nd section instead of David Horsfield as David's adjudicating that section next weekend. Too complicated for them maybe? Still, I suppose we have to be grateful for any publicity for the banding movement these days.
Nice pic of Hebden Bridge Band went with the article though so I'll forgive them!

Perhaps the writer went to the concert and felt the bands were 'belting them out'. Anyway, why not make sound a bit like Brassed Off? You're hardly going to attract the general public if you tell them the truth are you?

Went to Briggus rehearsal last night, sounding excellent, some lovely moments and good tight playing throughout the night. I'm sure they'll be up there come Sunday night. Good luck boys.

Yorkshire Area Contest

Good luck to all the competing bands, for most of us our annual opportunity to play in this wonderful concert hall. Really looking forward to my first contest with my new band in the very closely contested first section. Very much enjoyed rehearsing The Wayfarer, such wonderful music.

Whatever the results, I'm certain that the Yorkshire region will set a marvellous standard for the rest of the country to follow!
