Butlins Mineworkers Open Brass Band Festival 2008

Date: Saturday 19th January
Test piece: Lydian pictures, Simon Dobson
Adjudicators: David Read and David Lancaster
Venue: Royal Arthur Suite, Butlins Skyline Resort


The adjudicators David Read & David Lancaster must have been waiting for someone to get to grips with the piece, and for us, Thoresby Youth conducted by Christine Gent did so but found themselves eventually placed 11th by the judges.

You have to respect the decision of two experienced adjudicators but perhaps the band can count itself a little unlucky as it did sound controlled and precise in the ensemble. That’s contesting though.
