Scottish Open Champions 2013

The Co-operative Funeralcare Band are Scottish Open Champions 2013. Conducted by Gary Cutt, the band delivered an excellent performance of Wilfred Heaton's 'Contest Music' to retain the 'Champions' title won in 2012, making this the fifth win in the eleven year history of the contest.

The band would like to say a very special thanks to Gary for his inspiring direction on this difficult test piece and to say how much we enjoyed working with him during rehearsals. In addition, the band would like to put on record our thanks to Paul Hughes of the Fairey Band, who stepped in at very short notice to lead the band on the principal cornet chair with some stunning playing.

We now look forward to a series of Christmas concerts, including annual events in Paisley Town Hall with the Paisley Philharmonic Choir and in Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with the Phoenix Choir.
