European Brass Band Championships 2015

The band is now into an intensive rehearsal schedule as we prepare for the 2015 European Brass Band Championships in Freiburg next weekend.

Unfortunately a late change in Musical Director for the contest has been required. Allan Ramsay has been asked to step in with no notice and only a week to go, taking on the task of final preparations and conducting us at the contest.

Notwithstanding these unforseen circumstance, the band is in resolute mood and spirits are high as we make our preparations. 

The band will be perfoming a set work entitled ‘The God Particle’ by composer Rolf Rudin, a new composition inspired in part by the search and confirmation of the existence of the ‘Higgs-Boson’ particle through the work undertaken at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland. The set work performance will be on Friday 1st May.

On Saturday 2nd May we will be performing our own choice test piece.

The band would like to thank Andy Duncan, who has been working with us for the last 5 weeks on our two test pieces in preparation for our Musical Director.
