2nd Prize & BBW Cup at Wychavon

VBS Poynton Band came away with a very creditable 2nd Prize and the Brass Band World Cup at the Wychavon Festival of Brass yesterday, especially after playing off the No.1 draw.

The band's programme, including three pieces specially arranged for the band by our Soprano Cornet player Adrian Horn, was as follows:

Paint It Black - M. Jagger & K. Richards arr. A. Horn
Myfanwy - J. Parry arr. A. Horn
Brillante - P. Graham
(Baritone Soloist Andy Lawton)
Triumph (from Day of the Dragon) - P. Graham
Show Me The Way To Go Home - I. King arr. A. Horn

Our Solo Baritone, Andy Lawton, deserves a special mention for his stunning virtuoso performance of Brillante, and thanks should also go to our MD Kevin Gibbs for getting the band ready for the contest in little over a week.

Special congratulations must also go to our Contest Secretary Alan Nutton who received a Special Recognition award from the organisers of the contest as he was the Contest Secretary of VBS 21 years ago at the very first Wychavon Festival of Brass and has been in the same role all of that time.
