Dragon's Rising....

On Sunday, the Vernon Building Society (Poynton) Band competed in the Championship section of the Buxton Brass Band Festival.

Playing Philip Sparke's The Year of the Dragon (which is very appropriate considering we are in the Chinese year of the dragon), the band came off stage buzzing having performed really well with 4BarsRest describing us as delivering an exciting rendition. A special mention must go to our Solo Trombone John Anderson who played the solo in the 2nd movement beautifully.

Although, we would have liked to have won the contest, obviously 3rd prize is still an improvement over recent form and we have to thank our MD Colin Short for getting the band back in to the prizes once more... our dragon is definately rising!

Our next competative outing will be at the Whit Friday marches. See you there!
