On Sunday 11th September, our senior band were in action at the Hardraw Scar Brass Band Contest. The contest is held in the beautiful surroundings of the Hardraw Force Waterfall, near Hawes.
The weather was perfect, and the crowds were out in their hundreds to listen to the bands.
The year the bands programme featured our Solo Horn player, David Armitage, who played “She”, and Megan Reynolds on Euphonium in “All Night Long”. However, is was our young percussionist Lewis Barton, who stole the show in Bach’s Toccata with his fantastic Xylophone playing.
The band were delighted to receive the trophies for “1st place”, “Best March” and the Outstanding conductor award.
