Winning Streak Continues

The Bolsover Brass Entertainment Competition took place this weekend, held at its new venue, the Post Mill Centre, Market Street in South Normanton. (Not such an easy place to find!)

Top marks for VBS Poynton as they not only came top of the 1st Section, their Solo Baritone player, Andy Lawton, won the Soloist Prize for 'Napoli'. Can someone give me a 'whoop, whoop'. The Adjudicator was Ian Porthouse.

The programme was:
Walking with Heroes – P Lovatt-Cooper
Winter – Vivaldi arr. Snell
Napoli (soloist Andy Lawton) – Belstedt
Dundonell from Hymn of the Highlands Suite – P Sparke
