3rd Prize and Best Soloist at Bolsover

After a very early start for all our players (with a rehearsal in Bolsover at 7.30am!), VBS Poynton took part in two sections at yesterday's Bolsover Festival of Brass.

Our programme was:

Paint It Black - Jagger/Richards arr. Adrian Horn
Myfanwy - Parry arr. Adrian Horn
Brillante - Peter Graham
'Dundonell' from Hymn of the Highlands - Philip Sparke

In the 1st Section we played off the No.2 draw. The band played superbly and were hot favourites with listeners in the hall but were disappointed to only gain 3rd Prize from the adjudicator Allan Ramsey. However our baritone soloist, Andy Lawton, walked away with the Best Soloist prize for his performance of Peter Graham's Brillante.

In the Championship section we played from the dreaded No.1 draw. Again the band played really well, but unfortunately only came away with 6th Place.

Well done to everyone for playing so well, and especially to Andy Lawton for his soloist prize.

Full Results from the 1st and Championship sections are available here.
