Early November saw the band secure the title of Third Section Winners for the second year running at the Wychavon Festival of Brass with a brilliantly entertaining programme of music from ‘across the pond’.
Our wonderful and enthusiastic musical director, Neil Hewson came up with the idea to have an American theme for our return as title holders to Evesham. The audience found us Soaring the Skies; Marching Through Georgia; sprinkling Star Dust; and partying All Night Long after not only securing first place in the third section, but prizes for the most entertaining band and best musical director!
You’ll notice the band aren’t wearing their usual band jackets, but instead are wearing “Stars n’ Stripes” waistcoats, expertly made by our 3rd cornet player, Sue Emery assisted by our 2nd cornet player, Ann Cookson. I’m sure you’ll agree we definitely looked the part.
