We went to the contest as a registered band for the first time for many of us. We played 4 Cities Symphony the BEST we have ever played it and we came off the stage knowing that we had done our very best. The result was disappointing coming 10th out of 10 but we played against bands who were very experienced in contesting and who knew what was expected. To me 10 out of ten deserves a gold star and we are all very proud of what we achieved today. It is thanks to Alan Gifford that the band has progressed so far and this is the start of an exciting journey and partnership between us all.
If there are ANY players, especially euphonium, baritone, and a couple of Bb basses, who would like to help us on our way, then please contact Liz Cowley, Alan Gifford or just come down to Cheylesmore Community Centre on a Tuesday or Friday night at 7.30pm
